The Holy Family

Throughout history, art has used religious events and themes as subject matter; or rather, humans have been compelled to show religious events or persons in art. By "art" here I mean both true art and "pop" art, including holiday decorations. The depictions of scenes from the lives of biblical characters (particularly that of Christ) may hold beauty, or even serve as aids to the contemplation of sacred things. But the depictions themselves are generally not to be taken at face value as accurate representations.
