Coptic Christmas

Coptic icon
Budour Latif and Youssef Nassif

This modern-day depiction of the Nativity by the late couple Budour Latif and Youssef Nassif carries forward the tradition of Coptic icon painting. It testifies to the continuity not only of Christian religious art but also of a spirit of creativity and a distinctive touch, and feels like an appropriate way to celebrate Coptic Christmas on 7 January.
