NATIVITY in NATURE

This 11 by 12 foot textured tapestry by artist –weaver Lenore Tawney (born Leonora Agnes Gallagher) illustrates how Christ came into the world as a holy-spirit. The poetic abstract design showing Mary with the Christ child in her arms is represented by brilliant golden threads as a blaze of pure light. Nature in its heavy dark mystery is penetrated from above by the heavenly blessing accompanying the spirit of love.

The tapestry was purchased directly from the artist by the architects of The Interchurch Center for the Center’s opening in 1960.
