Gifts of the Magi

A couple of links to share regarding the Magi and their gifts.

 Gold is pretty well understood: the universal 'money', always a useful gift.
 But we are less familiar with Frankinsence and Myrrh. To learn more about these ancient herbs, click here:  http://www.itmonline.org/arts/myrrh.htm

The 'wise men from the east', often referred to as the Magi: Who might they have been?  Try this link:  http://www.newadvent.org/cathen/09527a.htm

 The Magi are almost finished. Headresses yet to be completed, the robe for the tall dark one needs some trim, or at least, a hem. Also, their gifts are unfinished.

New and improved shepherds??

I made the shepherd taller by putting him on a taller bottle, so then he'd outgrown his gown, so now he has a new one! I think his proportions are better, now. Thanks to Kat Lees for suggesting that solution to the impression of the head being too large.  Better now.

Tidings of Joy

Shepherd and son.  These need some improvements, probably smaller heads.
