I was inspired to do this image around last Christmas (yeah, that's how long it's been) but I didn't actually finish it until around Easter. I was thinking about the Star of Bethlehem and I realized, you know, when you see depictions of stars they usually have five points, but the Star of Bethlehem more often than not only has four. It has four points - just like the cross. I wonder if that's something that artists actually do on purpose. I'm actually pretty proud of how it came out; for once I didn't just stop once I thought it looked done, I kept going and surprised myself with some really nice results.
