Detail of the Hamburg Altar
This donkey looks like a giant inflatable--something that should be floating down the street in a Thanksgiving day parade.
What is Joseph picking from the tree (with the help of two angels) and putting in his hat?

Birth of Jesus
Fresco in the Church of the Archangel, Galata, Cyprus
Oh this painting is a fun house! THERE IS A SHEPHERD DRESSED IN A COCOON! There is a long skinny Jesus wrapped up like a tampon! And blink-or-you'll-miss-it tiny ox and ass at the place where Jesus' feet would be if he weren't wrapped up like a tampon!

Yeah, so Squishy looks a bit smug. Wouldn't you look smug too if you could stand on one foot while balancing a pear propped up by your mom's boob?

In my many years of keen Squishy Jesus observation this is a first: Squishy intervening to save a man under a sled. I'm telling you people, the genre just keeps on giving.

Mary's stoned, Jesus is dressed as a lil' nun, and the ass is having a giggle about the whole silly situation.

That's probably a peace sign Squishy is making, but it looks more like air quotes...and, is he doing wall squats? Most likely to reduce his thighs, which are suspiciously similar to hanging pig legs I saw all over Spain. Jamon anyone?
