Weird Object Friday

I'm not sure if you can call my object this week "weird" maybe more unique. And in honor of Easter this Sunday I decided this would be a good week to use this object. My Grandma gave this to me a few years ago. It a seashell with scenes of Jesus carved into it. I don't believe that it is hand carved. It looks to me like it might have been drilled. The top center is the manager scene and the bottom scene is the last supper. I'm not sure what the top two sides are. Some day I plan to take it to church and ask Pastor Ron if he can tell me.
It's very detailed and beautiful.

It is a beautiful piece. I think the right side is of John the Baptist baptizing Jesus. Just a guess though.

That is neat even if it is drilled. I think the left side is the angel Gabriel telling Mary of God's decision to use her. And I agree with gerry about the right side being John the Baptist baptizing Jesus.

Happy Easter!!
