The Adoration of the Child

The Adoration of the Child
By Lorenzo Lotto
Tempera on panel, 15.7 x 11.4"
National museum, Krakow, Poland

What up with this painting? Clearly monk dude is thinking "Mary, could you possibly put Squishy in a more comfortable position?" St. John has bulging biceps and thunder thighs. And who the heck is weird troll man behind Mary supposed to be?
