Lighting the world with hope

‘Scar of Bethlehem’ by Banksy

Banksy, the famous British street and graffiti artist released a new nativity scene located in the Walled Off Hotel, called the ‘Scar of Bethlehem’. In this scene, Mary, Joseph and the infant Jesus are lying underneath a piece of West bank wall which separates Israel from the Palestinian territories. Instead of the traditional star hanging over the crib, there is what appears to be a large bullet hole piercing the imposing wall.
