Title

Noel God Delivers His Son Postcard

Description

This postcard is oriented vertically and is of a clay carving image. In the upper center-right, thick clouds are seen, and in these clouds is a hole. Leaning over the edge of the lower clouds through this hole is God, with a long bear and hooded robes. With two hands, he holds the naked child, Jesus. Jesus' two feet are pointed toward the earth below Him and He looks down towards where He is to be placed. God, meanwhile, looks to His left towards two figures standing on the earth. These figures appear to be a man and woman holding onto each other and not looking up at the sky at what is happening. Around them stand many sheep in muddy and grassy fields. It is amid the sheep that Jesus is going to be placed. To the immediate right of God is "Noel" in 3D gold, glitter script with a decoration near the "N." At the bottom center of the card the artist's name is carved into the clay. At the top right of the card is printed "DOUCE ESPERANCE."
