For Unto Us a Child is Born by Simon Dewey
About this Image:
And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger. - Luke 2:12
The idea behind this picture was to show the perspective of Heavenly Father looking down at His Son, knowing the life, the ministry, and ultimately the sacrifice that He had sent His Son to do. As a sad but relevant part of the story behind this picture, my wife and I were looking for a baby to use as a model for the picture when the phone rang. It was a call to let us know that a friend of my oldest daughter, who was just fourteen, had just delivered her baby and named him Joshua. I thought that Mary could have been quite young and so I asked, delicately, if we might use this girl’s new son as the model. He was just six days old when I took the reference shot.
