Adoration of Magi – Master of the Darmstadt

     The Three Kings adore the Christ Child, held out to them by His mother, in this image by the Master of the Darmstadt.

     The Blessed Mother sits outside the Holy Family's house, on a chair placed atop a rug. St. Joseph stands behind her, in the entrance of the house. The Child Jesus, sitting on His Mother's lap, places His hand in the uncovered golden chalice, which one of the kings holds out to Him. The other two kings and their courtiers stand behind the king who presents the chalice to Christ. The rustic buildings of Bethlehem make up the background of the image.
