This lovely plate shows an entire village coming together to celebrate the birth of Jesus. In the center of the plate the Holy Family is depicted in a stable surrounded by a number of animals.
The women of the village are moving toward the stable carrying pointsettias. Some of them are kneeling in adoration. Toward the edge of the plate children are playing with a kite. Their mothers are trying to draw their attention to the Holy Family.
