By the great kindness of our Chicago Christmas Elves, I am pleased to present my beautiful glass Infant Jesus in Manger. He is beautiful! (You might not know it, but the manger in my first glass nativity posting was really an eye cup that I used because I didn't have a manger.)
I love the gesture of the hand raised in blessing and the bright gold suffusing his person. This is a splendid complement to the wonderful glass nativity! The divinity of the Christ Child is emphasized both by the gold accents and by the fact that he's of a slightly larger scale than the other pieces. This places the emphasis on Him alone. The Prince of Peace -- here as a tender, vulnerable but divine child.
Thank you, thank you, thank you!!! I love him!!!
