Polish Holy Family

Set in a simple stable, Mary a stout mother Mary is holding a pious baby Jesus. Joseph stand protectively behind them. His facial expression seems to hint at the fact that he does not know what to think. The star rests on top of the stable. The tree of life grows right outside. The donkey is the only animal in the stable.
