    Well I'm sorry for the delay, I promised and here it is finished, done with pencil and eraser, a single layer. I hope you like it.

    This is very nicely done, Javier.

    You've made the whole thing look beautifully silvery,
    with your delicate pencil work.
    Astonishing, really.

    Dear Javier, an absolute masterpiece and top class drawing.
    Furtherly this image is the representation of the most genuine and truly spirit of Christmas and my feelings go from admiration of Your artful and masterful drawing to adoration for the Holy Baby Jesus.
    Santa Claus has a deep religious origin too and Saint Nicholas and his life is one of the brightest fruit of the Gospels, but here we're in the deepest core of all the wonderful reality and meanings and feelings Christmas is, has and raises.
    Actually there's another paradoxical subversion of our human expectations and way of thinking operated by God which is expressed in this image, just like with the episode of Abraham and Isaac.
    In fact, while the wisemen open hearts recognize here the divine coming on earth, as announced by the signs they saw and indicated by the knowledge, research and studies they made in their quest, thus taking regal gifts to the King of kings, the deepest reality is that it's once more God providing His ultimate and most engaging gift to all humans of good will, that is Himself sharing our condition, in full humility and up to the extreme sacrifice, the greatest demonstrated and effective Love and Mercy towards us. His Son came to us as the least so as we could go back to the Father too, starting from the last and most outcats ones, out of any pain, of death and solitude.
    Is there a more joyful, hopeful, complete gift than this, especially in front of these days of crisis, not only an economical and financial one?
