What lovely iconography! Amazing that that detail was done with egg tempera!
I love how the angels are busily overseeing events. Never underestimate how much your guardian angel helps you!
So much going on here. I clicked through but couldn’t find the scene, amongst all the others. It’s so tiny, I wouldn’t have known there were angels, and looks like more than one baby, I suppose different scenarios. So much detail, interesting how the era the artist lives in influences the outcome. Hard to tell, but looks as though Mary could be in labor, I like the attempt for reality amid the iconry.
