2011 Christmas Nativity Stamps

2011 Christmas Nativity Stamps Photo

The image chosen to celebrate Christmas this year is taken from a painting in the Pinacoteca of the Vatican Museums, a work of Cretan art from the 15th century. The stamps depict the Nativity of the Lord in a manger made of wood as a sign of the destiny of cruci´Čüxion and the culmination at the sepulchre where the Blessed Mother holds vigil.
