 This is a clumsy and generally atrocious attempt at a copy of a poignant greeting titled "Nativity 2018" showing a baby in a tattered old box and a lovely young mom huddled over her...

 anywhere and everywhere.... Anyway, sometimes it's good to remember the Christmas story as told in the Gospels... These folks were not piling up shopping carts with glittery stuff.

 I wouldn't say atrocious...it is very touching, and I agree...it is good to remember that Jesus is the reason for the season.

 I like the image of the child and the box. I missed the mother until I read your comments.

 awesome 'painting' - very artistic statement. i like the way you've described the nativity and made it also a metaphor for devastation - i'd enter this as a real painting to a museum - you could make signed prints of it :)
