Wise Men Still Seek Him

“Oh! You’re putting your Christmas things away!” I noticed, as I was picking up my friend.

“No, no, not until after Epiphany!” she said. “Our tradition is to take down the tree when Epiphany is over.”

Tomorrow, January 6, is The Feast of Holy Epiphany and in celebration, I will post two more works of art I found to celebrate the wise men seeking the child by following a mysterious star. Many people are still looking for a scientific foundation for the Star of Wonder and if you click on the blue Star of Wonder it will take you to a very good discussion of some of the possibilities from BBC News.

I like this one because the Wise Men have on clothing that really looks Persian:

Here, in a painting by Murillo, they look, not surprisingly, Spanish/European, except for the African!

I wonder if in their travels, these wise men came through Kuwait?
