Representation of the Nativity and Nativity Scene in rocks

Mary Pitzeri

Damien Luce wrote "If flint is the stone of war, the pebble is that of love, polished by the waters of tenderness." So if the pebble is the stone of love, why not paint them to make an original nativity scene 🥰 ?

When painted rocks become santons

We can make a nativity scene with only Jesus, Mary and Joseph. Placed on a plaster stand with a candle, this makes a perfect Christmas table decoration.
