Restoration Church of the Nativity, Bethlehem

The Church of the Nativity in Bethlehem is originally built in 339 AD, and after a fire rebuilt in the 6th century AD. Necessary restorations are taking place at the moment, by the Piacenti Spa Organization.
Recently the mosaic of an angel was discovered, until then completely covered by plaster.
Together with the newly uncovered angel we now have seven angel mosaics in the Church, all pointing to the birthplace of our Lord Jesus Christ.
