Joseph and Mary can’t make it to Bethlehem, on Banksy’s Christmas card

Banksy Christmas card
Yesterday an image that is purportedly British street artist Banksy Christmas card this year started making the rounds on Twitter. The artwork in question is, in many ways, a conventional Biblical landscape painting, which shows what are presumably the figures of Joseph and Mary she astride a donkey making their way toward Bethlehem, only to find their route blocked by the graffiti-covered Israeli West Bank barrier.
To the left, a shepherd tends his sheep, while in the distant sky a cross-shaped star lights up the heavens over the imposing concrete wall.
Card is available at If Americans Knew.
