  7. Very fascinating painting. There are several details that I find curious. Does anyone know where I could find a critique of the painting which might provide some insight into its composition? For example, why do Mary and the Christ child appear to be perch on the rim of a chasm? Why is Jesus depicted lying on the ground, rather than in a manger?

    • Nevermind. I found a wider photo of the painting. What I was seeing was the molding around the pillars in the foreground. A fantastic painting. I particularly like the shadowy image of Joseph guarding the doorway, holding a lamp.
