Crafty Nativity

I got this nativity scene during a visit to the Museum of American Folk Art in New York City. I think when Lee and I were there for the National Book Awards. (I was a judge.)

This is made out of a goose egg–okay I may have the egg wrong but it is a BIG egg–and wire. I’m not sure it is, technically, a nativity scene. It hangs on the tree. And even though the star is blazing across the sky, Christ looks more like the Christ Child than the Baby Jesus. But everybody looks pretty happy.

I especially love the curly hair.
