Floral Nativity

Floral Nativity

This colorful nativity is carved from cedar wood and then painted with unique floral motives.  Of note is that the Christ child, rather than lying in a manger is placed on a pineapple. The symbolic meaning of a pineapple is welcome, generosity and hospitality. How striking that the child who was not welcomed at the Inn and therefore was born in a stable is placed on a pineapple, the symbol of welcome.
