And here’s also a simpler piece, entitled “No Room at the Inn.” I like the upraised hands blocking each of the doorways in the background, and the row of black-doored houses framing the picture across the bottom, echoing the shapes of the more abstract border across the top. I like how Mary actually looks really pregnant, and I like the chicken waiting in the barn behind.
Here is the collection of M printmakers I’ve featured here before:

Scenes from the Old Testament, or Nebuchadnessear, lino block print by Mbatha (Image from Mutual Art);
