Adoration of Magi -- Within stable with wooden roof and brick walls, three crowned Magi, two holding gold vessels, kneel before Virgin Mary, nimbed, seated on canopied bed. She holds partially swaddled Christ-Child, facing Magi, on lap. Ox and ass, facing away, are to left of figures. At right, Joseph the Carpenter, holding stick, bends forward.
