Religious references are a continuous theme in the work of Antony Micallef. This piece, named after the supposed birthplace of Jesus of Nazareth, depicts a woman crying into the cot of an unseen baby surrounded by toys; a teddy bear, a ball, and an ice cream fallen on the floor. Although unclear the scene suggests some unknown tragedy has befallen the solitary woman, alone in her suffering save the abandoned relics of a lost childhood.
