It is a remarkable work of a master baker Joseph of Marianske Lazne, which is not showing the birth of Christ, but also the history of Slovak nation. Joseph baker's idea was incorporated into the biblical images of the life environment of Slovak people. God's birth is located in the middle of the work and is set into the village Rajecká Lesná. Around it are represented all Slovak regions of their most famous places and monuments. Castles Devin, Bratislava, Trencin, Orava, cathedrals, Nitra, Trnava, Spišská Kapitule, Kosice and others.
