These minimal nativity scenes are really cool.
From the description of this first minimal nativity scene:
“The characters have lost their features and colours for a modern appearance that could appeal both believers and atheists. The holy scene that has been broadly reproduced is here recognizable by the names only, giving free rein to people’s imagination.”
I’m not sure that giving a nativity scene a minimal look would ever appeal to an atheist, perhaps they’re overstating the minimalism? Either way, I think they’re pretty cool:
The words may be a little direct for some, so they may like this next minimal nativity a little more as the scene replaces the words with color and includes a little more difference in the sizing. This from the product page:
“The project makes use of our learned experience from exposure to thousands of images, toys and christmas cards over the years. ”
I found this quote interesting, as both of these minimal nativity scenes are made possible by our minds ability to fill in the blanks — no matter the religious affiliation.
The impact of the Christmas story is clearly scene by these minimal nativities, as most anyone would be able to tell you who’s who and even be able to set it up.
What do you think of these minimal nativity scenes?
