According to the legend of the Irish Saint Bride she was transported miraculously to Bethlehem to attend the nativity of Christ. Here two angels carry the white robed saint across the sea. The seascape reflects Duncan's fascination with the Outer Hebrides and the Isle of Iona. The birds and seal provide an effective naturalistic foil for the supernatural angels overlapping the patterned border.
John Duncan (1866–1945) was one of the leading representatives of the Celtic Revival in Scottish art, Duncan first trained as an illustrator in his native city, Dundee.
