Baby Korean Jesus

The Nativity Scene a la Lantern Festival
This evening, I went to the Jinju Lantern Festival (진주남강유등축제), where the main attraction is a gallery of enormous, colorful, "lantern" sculptures floating on the Nam River (남당). This one is a Nativity scene with Asian wise men, Asian Joseph and Mary, and a beautiful baby Asian Jesus (아기예수) in his lit-up manger. It's late, so I have to retire to my own manger now, but I promise more photos to come soon.
