Mosaic of Wood
Trotwood, OH


This nativity set is a mosaic of wood consisting of more than two hundred pieces.  Termed Intarsia, the many elements of the crèche are fitted into a support, and suggest the long road to Bethlehem, meandering through a Mid-eastern landscape.  Made mainly of cedar wood, the silhouettes of the nativity figures are like escapees from a world of too much wooden harmony.  Together they form the beginning of a new world at the end of a long road.
