Three Kings Day -

Salvete Omnes
so today we have the fine feast day of Magi (Epiphany)- Three Kings and their Adoration of Baby Jesus.
I am mixing some images for this occasion -
so first Adoration piece by one of my favorite painters of all times - Peter Paul Rubens.. housed at the Royal Museum at Antwerp.

Rubens' Adoration

interesting portrayal of a curb-bit and reins - XVII century horsemanship


long-shanks of this curb-bit

and a bit of anachronism  as find below several images of the Parthenon frieze - ancient Athenian cavalcade 'honoring' the Holy Family on this Epiphany feast day.
