Passers-by were yesterday evening greeted with a magical atmosphere full of colourful projections, music and a Nativity Scene painting at St George’s Square, Valletta.
Although the Covid 19 Pandemic has changed the way the Valletta Cultural Agency is organising Christmas events in Valletta this year, the Christmas projections on The Palace façade and the Casino Maltese create a magical atmosphere in St George’s Square and can be enjoyed safely this festive season.
The nativity scene at the Main Guard in St George’s Square is the work of artist Lisa M. Kaehler. The five-panel artwork of this year’s representation of the Nativity, narrates the birth of Christ in a sequential, yet continuous manner.
Various characters, inspired by traditional crib figurines populate the panels, as they slowly gather to welcome Baby Jesus.
The style of the digital artwork portrays bold and clean graphic outlines that are almost neutralised by the freehand and spontaneous henna art patterns that adorn the scene festively.
