Nativity scene atop the baptistry at the Washington National Cathedral in Washington, D.C.

This 70-piece terra cotta set, which depicts the birth of Jesus Christ, contains no Caucasians. Every individual in the piece is historically accurate, which is to say that their features are Semitic, African, or Asian.
