Central panel of a triptych painting depicting Mary praying for her son Jesus. Hans Memling, a German-born Netherlandish painter, like many artists of his time, painted many Biblical scenes for cathedrals including altarpieces and triptypchs.
In this Christmas painting, a priest assists Mary while she prays after the birth of baby Jesus. A curious ox peeks between the two to gaze upon the infant. This Christmas image would make be wonderful addition to a Christmas card or other Christmas craft.
