Walled Nativity

Thanks to the "230-mile, six-metre high wall, topped with barbed wire and lined with guard towers, that encircles Palestine -- and Bethlehem," the Three Kings wouldn't have made it to Bethlehem in 2007. That's the message behind a nativity scene made by the Amos Trust. It's the manger scene we've come to expect, with one exception: there's a wall between the holy family and the assembled worshippers.

But that gag just scratches the surface. The pieces in the scene are all made from olive wood by craftsmen living in Bethlehem, and all proceeds will be donated to Palestinian projects.
