There is something about Sandro Botticelli's Mystic Nativity (1500) which I find mesmerizing. Specifically the angels swathed in muted green, oyster and blush flowing fabric. Ribbons twirling around evergreen branches all set against a luminous golden heaven.
So with this as my inspiration and my predisposition to associate pretty much anything to art history I thought I would whip up a little 16th century Christmas.
