The Star of Bethlehem

Bruno Piglhein

ca. 1890


This simple yet moving work by 19th century German artist Bruno Piglhein captures Mary quietly holding her infant Jesus, with the angels around them in wonder and adoration. The Star of Bethlem shines high above them in the night sky, pointing the way to the Christ child for all who will go to Him. Jesus's humanity is expertly captured in His small newborn form, while His divinity is shown by His radience and the angelic hosts that have come to be with their Lord.

Our Star of Bethlehem by Bruno Piglhein Diptych quietly depicts the scene and meaning of Christmas both in the dead of winter and around the year. Adorn a shelf, mantle, or bedside table with this high-quality, glossy wood 6"x8" diptych, or give it to a loved one to remind them of the joy and peace of Christ's coming.


On the opposite side of the image is a beautiful prayer, reading:

Hail and blessed be the hour and moment in which the Son of God was born of the most pure Virgin Mary, at midnight, in Bethlehem, in the piercing cold.

In that hour vouchsafe, I beseech Thee, O my God, to hear my prayer and grant my desires through the merits of Our Savior Jesus Christ, and of His blessed Mother. Amen.
