Description: Triptych with the Nativity and Saints. On the verso of the right panel of the Triptych with the Nativity and Saints, one of the Magi kneels in adoration of the infant Christ who is placed on his mother's lap to the right. The narrow format of the painting allowed the artist to include only two of the Magi. The lines of the architecture of the stable in the right corner effectively lead the viewer's eye back into the picture where the second Magi is shown against a backdrop of trees, awaiting his turn to pay his respects to Christ.
