Unto You

Today, the Christmas Season climaxes in the Feast of the Epiphany, the celebration of the manifestation of Christ among us, and the star manifested His presence to the shepherds and kings. I worked on this shepherdess over these traditional “Twelve Days of Christmas” with great gratitude to the four generations of Fontanini family for the enchanting image. I fell for the captivating figurine of about 7 inches tall when I was in Assisi Italy this past summer, and she posed for me.
