Adoration of the Magi - Venetian school early 18th century

Oil on canvas depicting the Adoration of the Magi. Venetian school of the early 18th century. The story of the Magi comes from the Gospel of Matthew, which indicates that Magi of the East, having followed a star, came to worship in Bethlehem the king of the newborn Jews, and offered him gold, myrrh and incense. In the West, the number of the three wise men, after having varied greatly, was fixed at three. Symbols were quickly associated with them, and in the 15C they ended by personifying the three continents known in the Middle Ages (Asia, Africa, Europe) after having represented, from the 12th century. the three ages of life. Recall that the gold, brought by Melchior, is associated with the earthly power, the incense is related to the religious ritual, the sacrality of the Child, myrrh, associated with embalming, so to death, the Passion and the Resurrection of Christ. Beautiful carved and gilded wooden frame from the early 19th century. Usual restorations. 115x142 with frame
