TRIUMPH OF SPIRIT IN LOVE, NATURE & ART

Away in a Manger

Scan2_edited-3

Unmistakable pride

in the smile

on the mother’s face

bonding with her

babe asleep beside her

in utter security

in utter trust

of their caretakers

unknowing of their future fate

at the bloody hand

of man.

  4. Beautiful and touching, Ellen. For me, it is quite symbolic and timely that you chose the image of a Lamb in a manger…Dee

    • Thank you, Dee, for your lovely comment. I found the scene very touching. The mother really appears to be smiling.

    • Oh, God, Genie. They were all adorable. I saw pictures everywhere. I was too busy snapping photos that I missed petting them. A farmer invited me at lambing time.
