Illuminated Adoration Cards

The Fitzwilliam Museum
An endearing detail, with gold foiling to the border and halos, depicting the Adoration of the Ox and the Ass, from a historiated initial in a Choir Psalter c.1450-60, now in the collection of the Museum. The ox and the ass are the first 'characters' portrayed by the early church as part of the Nativity; Mary, Joseph, the shepherds and Magi were much later additions to the iconography of the scene. This focus upon the creatures recalls the words of Isaiah, 1:3 - 'The ox knoweth his owner, and the ass his master's crib: but Israel doth not know, my people doth not consider' - reflecting the natural world's recognition of the Messiah from his very birth.

Printed 'Best wishes for Christmas and the New Year'.
6 ¼" square.
