Starry Night Nativity…and heaven and nature sing. “Starry Night Nativity challenged me to tell a story and engage the viewer in a small space. All the figures fit into an 8” box that opens up as a triptych and reveals a starry night encircling an intimate scene. My use of deep gradated blues and sparkly gold is a jewel-like reference to historical objects of art… I embellished the surfaces with gold dots –symbolizing light, or energy, hope inner strength…Gold connotes preciousness and enduring value, and I wanted this to be a special piece, that would be kept for a long time, or possibly handed down within families. “I designed this piece to be versatile enough to display year-round, on a table or a wall; open or closed. The outside doors reflect nature and the cycles of life–regeneration, renewal, rebirth. 8.5″h; 16″ wide when open; 1/4” deep doors Hinged resin box; applied gold leaf. Can be hung on wall or free standing. Hanger style: 2 keyholes. Weighs approximately 5.5 pounds.
