The nativity is one of the most iconic and represented images in the history of art, the subject of uncountable interpretations and variations. The one presented by Treccani is the result of the encounter between the visionary genius of the artist, architect and designer Luigi Serafini (known for the Codex Seraphinianus ), and the skilled hands of the ceramic craftsmen of Deruta.
The Serafini Nativity in precious craquelé ceramics shows a bas-relief depicting the city of Los Angeles, a city founded by the Franciscans in the 1700s, and in front of the figure of St. Francis, probably the inventor of Christmas nativity scenes, busy setting up the scenery. In the foreground are two small mobile tiles on which the figures of Joseph and Mary are portrayed, with a cat - emblem of the home - and a cosmic egg which encloses and protects the Golden Child. At the base of the scene appear a colourful dragon, symbol of Deruta, and blue letters with the characters of the Codex Seraphinianus , delimited by mathematical infinity symbols.
The Nativity scenes, in a limited edition and numbered from 1/99 to 99/99, are all signed by Luigi Serafini.
