GK Chesterton wrote of God being born in a cave and, looking it up, I read that it is likely that He was. Wood was a hot commodity in that area of the world in those days and wasn't used to build animal housing like it was in Europe, where we get a lot of our imagery of the Christmas scene. Instead, people in the middle east would carve stables out of the stone or they'd use caves.
I love that imagery. The God of the universe... born in a cave. I don't even like to use public restrooms!

This is my first time actually celebrating Advent properly minus the secularism (I'm a work in progress), and wanted something memorable. Well God must grant wishes too because everything I received today will be memorable for years to come. I purchased both the Advent candles set and Byzantine Mary and Joseph. If you read my other review on the amazing Advent candles set (you won't be disappointed), then you know to go ahead and buy them; they are that awesome. I look forward to buying from ADH in the coming year. Also, these would make a great gift.
precious. These icomos show with naïve simplicity our Christian faith. I love them. Coptic style. Highly recommended and for great children. MARY Esther. Thank you🤗🤗🤗🤗🤗🤗🤗🤗Dios bless you
I advise all these Coptic Christian tablets their always naïve appearance is full of spirituality and very advisable for children and the transmission of the faith. ❤️😍🤗
I too grew up with icons all gold and I never liked the style, believing as I do that neither would Christ. Dorothy Day, my hero, certainly would not. So I adore your simple creations.
