This Nativity Scene has been created by artist Michael Aram, who was inspired by his childhood memory of his own family's nativity set and the joy surrounding its installation each Christmas. The beauty of the piece is expressed through its sculptural quality, intricate metal-working techniques, and through the use of mixed metals. Aram was very inspired by the richness of symbolism and meaning embodied in traditional art forms depicting the birth of baby Jesus.
"For me, Christmas is a magical time of year, enhanced by family rituals and decorating the house in beautiful ways. Each year, as we unpacked and assembled our family's Creche, I was reminded of the true meaning of Christmas and the story of Christ's birth. It is as though the assembly of the Nativity captured the essence of the holidays."
