Category -- Color Stencil on Hand Crumpled Momigami Paper The Birth of Christ Artist: Sadao Watanabe Description: This rendering of THE NATIVITY is both still and animated as well as richly decorative. Mary holds the Christchild in a warm embrace, her gently bent head close to his; the folds of her gown swing out in rich folds, giving her figure a special grace. In contrast to her animated form, are three horseheads and the strirated manger roofs held in rigid geometric pattern. The Three Kings are wonderfully described, each distinguished from the next be means of stance, glance and clothing. Above, three Shepherds peering out and framed by decorative trees, complete this beautifully conceived and intimate scene. Issued: 1972 Medium: color stencil Edition: 27/70 Condition: Pristine.
