Above a decorative block is the word "Noel." In the center of the block are three angels with their trumpets. The angels float through the star-studded night sky, their long skirts and bare feet trailing behind them in a graceful arc. Below the angels are the rounded humps of hills, edged with an egg-and-dart-like pattern. (Monica Jensen 04/15/93)
