The Christmas Story in Abstract Paintings

This time of year the story of Christmas is everywhere else. Below you have my version in abstract paintings. It brings something new to the 2000 year old story that you may not have experienced before.

As I remember the story, King Herod found out there was a rumor that the King of the Jews was coming. He asked the Maji to locate him and report back to him. They of course followed yonder Star of Bethlehem to visit the New Born King in a stable. This scene is re-enacted in our Nativity scenes today. The Three Kings or wise men brought gifts of gold, Frankincense and Myrrh. The Maji returned home by a different route to avoid King Herod.

The below images are my version of the story. Each is labeled beneath.
