Can anyone help me learn more about this needlework?

last year

I picked this up at a thrift store because I love textiles and was taken with the nativity scene. I'd love to find out more info to determine if I should spend some money to have it restored or just keep it in the spare bedroom and take it out at Christmas. I was under the impression that good needlework should be as beautiful on the back as it is on the front, which you can see is not the case here. But maybe that's bad info. It measures approx. 48" x 36".

Front (love how everyone is looking adoringly at the Christ child but that horse is "Whatever, let's eat."


Front detail. It has some beading in places, not a lot.

Back detail

A bit more front detail
