When we were in Italy last year, there were Nativity Scenes everywhere-in stores, restaurants, etc. Here is one that I photographed. Notice the blue clothes on most of the figures. Do you see a missing person?
Hopefully Mary was behind the king, and not really missing. Just an example of my amateur photography. LOL
The backdrop for this Nativity was plain brown paper like used for packaging. I wanted to try to copy this idea for my Nativity so I think that was why I took this picture. It looks like it had been crumpled up, then straighten out with a brownish glaze on it. I really liked the look but didn't get around to it..but there's always next year!
