Stunning Nativity Scenes

Marianne Stokes, an Austrian who was born  Marianne Preindlsberger in the Austrian province of Styria in 1855, She died in Londin, England in 1927. I love the nativity scene where an exhausted Mary is asleep with angels singining to entertain Baby Jesus. And what a stroke of genius, to include crown of thorns branches with the Madonna an d Child!
