Beautiful Battle created a nativity scene for St Mary's Crib and
Christmas Tree Festival 2013. As BB is a gardening group, the nativity scene was based around the garden shed with a
difference. Baby Jesus is placed in a trug in the corner of the shed with leaves on the floor. It is winter.
Around him, and behind him, are depictions of his life to come - the apostles, key to the Kingdom of Heaven, loaves and fishes,
parables (seed falling on stony ground, the lost coin, the mustard seed, light under a bushel, wheat and tares), crown of
thorns, hammer and nails, and the cruxificion. For christmas, there is holly and ivy, and a robin. The mice and
the robin just live in the shed.
