Nativity Scene


I bet the title of this post probably surprises you, and though this is... a nativity scene that I photographed at the Madeleine Church. And before you think this is crazy or even Blasphemy, think twice: it was created by artist Gaetan Duthu and scenographer Pierre Bourgois who imagined what it would be like if the Christ would be born today. Television networks would certainly play a large role, wouldn't they? I personally love it. More photos here.

  6. Quite original. Hope you're having a happy Christmas Day wherever you are. And beware of excesses, whether for food or drink.

  7. In the UK, if Mary was pregnant today, she'd have been induced in order to have the baby before 25th December!

  8. Quite interesting...but do you think it would make the news? Angels came to the lowest on the corporate ladder of the time, shepherds, to tell them first. Interesting to think of, but I don't think it would even rate a report on the local newscast if it happened today. Not that it shouldn't, since it was the most wonderful event known to man: GOD came to earth as a baby. :)

  9. Interesting to note the varying comments when it comes to religion.

    I liked the different perspective of the art work when I looked at your other pictures.
    Happy Holidays to my blogger friends!!!

  10. Are you kidding? Everything is on the news, on the internet, on blogs, on Facebook, blah blah blah. We'd know how many coats of paint the manger had and what the colors are. We'd have videos of the breath of the beasts. Unfortunately, it would be a couple weeks before the Magi arrived, which would be a great spectacle (think caravan of camels) except that the media and its audience can't pay attention for that long.

  12. Interesting! Parisian art can be so edgy! Love it! Thanks for all your wonderful photos. You bring us a wonderful glimpse into Paris!

  13. That's a fresh take! I like the crisp, clean feel of it. That railing is a great foil and nestles the shot firmly in Paris :-). The outfits are even sculptural. Kinda neat.
