The Nativity

The Navity
By the Limbourg Brothers
Les Très Riches Heures du duc de Berry
Illuminated Manuscript
Musée Condé, Chantilly, France

"They laid him in a manger because there was no room for him at the inn."

Here we see a manger made up of bodiless blue angels. Sweet! They fed the ox and ass out of that?

God's up on top surrounded by his own wreath of red disembodied angel heads. Even better (trust me, you're gonna want to enlarge the picture to have a closer look) his beard is emitting laser beam of light down onto his son.

Oh, and Joesph is wearing a super righteous hat.
