Description: The Adoration of The Magi. The figures of the Magi are shown approaching to kneel before the Virgin and Child. The artist has juxtaposed the rich colours of the costumes worn by the group. While conveying the status of the Magi, this also expresses joy at the birth of Christ, echoed in the cherubs descending from the sky. The figures are framed within the architecture of the stable and the ruined temple. The camels in the background refer to the exotic origins of the Magi.
