1351 - Nativity 2 Complete

I know I forget to post my final results every time I finish an icon, and Nativity 2 falls into that pattern.  I did finish this some time ago, and this was the picture I took back in January.  

This icon is very much like the previous nativity icon I painted.  To see the other Nativity, you can click here to see JSVB Post #1195.  I used the same design, but some of the paintwork is a little more mature.  The inscription is in Greek this time.  Mostly, I chose Greek because the Cyrillic Russian and Ukrainian lettering took up too much room.  The writing translates to "The Genesis Of Christ"... Jesus' birth!
