[[Image:Nativity htm.jpg|frame|right|[[Nativity]] of Christ Icon]]
The traditional '''[[icon]]''' style of the '''[[Nativity|Nativity of Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ]]''' is from the 15th century and attributed to Saint [[Andrei Rublev]]. It depicts the Creator of the universe entering history as a newborn babe. The icon of the Nativity also shows the effect of this event on the natural life of the world.
The [[angels]] are glorifying God, tending to the action, and ministering: announcing the [[Gospel|Good News]] to the shepherds, or singing. To the right, a young shepherd sits, wearing a wreath and playing his flute, showing the joy of the Good News.
