Anton Mengs' rendition of the birth of Christ is a truly grand piece with the Holy Family surrounded by the angels and animals as well as those you see in this painting. I chose to paint the Nativity with those you see here. I loved the way Christ is looking at us... with the light and the warmth coming from Him.
