Before Rosemary Sutcliff became I writer, she was an artist. She made beautiful miniatures. One of her set of miniatures is a stunning nativity scene. As Rosemary was my dad’s Godmother and cousin, we inherited some of her possessions when she died in 1992. The nativity scene was one of those possessions and every christmas we put it out next to the christmas tree in the front hall of our family home in Leicester. Here are some photographs my wife took this christmas of this beautiful piece of art.
