The Advent Banner (1999)
Adoration of the Christ
Artist: Deborah Melton Anderson
Media: Sewn Textile
The Christ Child is represented in the center,
wrapped in swaddling clothes lying on a bed of hay. The halo denotes divinity.
Mary and Joseph gaze in wonder at the miracle before them. The Animals stare in rapt amazement. Doves in flight symbolize the presence of the Holy Spirit. A bright beam from heaven lights the way for The Three Kings who are seeking to worship Him.
