This heirloom fold-out Nativity scene once belonged to my grandmother. A beautiful work of art, the scene is filled with wonderful details. Turned around, the reverse of the painting can be found on the opposite side. Amazing!
The Nativity was painted by Swedish artist, Helge Artelius (1895-1989).
I found many examples of Artelius’s work on the web, but there were few details about her life. If anyone can fill in the blanks about this artist please leave a comment. Thanks!
