Alessi Nativity

Alessi Nativity

This colorful and playful nativity scene was designed by Massimo Giacon. It was made in Italian porcelain and hand painted.

Of great interest is the depiction of the magi. They playfully illustrate the belief promoted by  the Venerable Bede (d. 735) that the Magi or wise men represented the three parts of the world known to him: Asia, Africa, and Europe.
