Title
Baby Jesus in Manger
Description
Composition in black and white. Intersecting straight lines and contour. It depicts Child Jesus in a manger surrounded by a donkey and an ox. In the center, Child Jesus lying facing forward, his torso upright, halo around the head and hands raised up in the air. To the left, a little behind the child, a donkey is standing facing forward, with the head turned to the right looking towards the Child Jesus. On the right, also a little behind the boy, a ox is standing in front, his head turned to the left, also looking to the child. Dark background represented by straight lines intersecting. The composition is entirely too dark, stading out, however, the figure of Child Jesus in the lighter area.
