“The Nativity” examines the use of religion as a pretext for war. How many wars have been fought in the name of one religion or another? The artwork is a parody of the “Holy” Nativity scene with Mother Mary played by Saddam Hussein, Father Joseph played by Osama bin Laden, the Baby Jesus played by George Dubya Bush. The scene is complete with straw, and various animals. The family that prays together stays together.
