As Christmas approaches, the esteemed artist Daniel Mitsui sent me another print, this time of the Adoration of the Magi. Very nice!
A few details.
It was inspired by a 15th c. panel by the Master of the AH Monogram.
The Circumcision is depicted in the upper left.
There is a millefleur pattern inspired by late-Medieval tapestry.
He followed Ven. Bede’s explanation of the wisemen as representing all the races.
I’m glad he included the critters.
There are lots of great little details, such as OT foreshadowings of the Adoration by the Magi: three heroes bringing water to David, The Queen of Sheba at Solomon’s throne.
Beautiful colors. As usual the photos don’t do them justice.
This would make a great Christmas present for someone (including yourself).
Contact Mr. Mitsui HERE. Check out the other great religious art he has made.
