How’s this for an interesting treatment of the wise men?
It’s called The Italian Prints by Anna Fisher (1873-1942.)
Obviously, Anna meant for us to see the Italian prints of
(1.) Mary and Jesus and (2.) the wise men, but notice the second group
of wise men in the bowl of flowers on the shelf in front of those prints.
We’re looking over their shoulders as they view the two prints
representing their visit to the infant prince Jesus.
We can assume Anna is referring to Jesus as an Italian prince
since the halo behind the head of Mary indicates these prints
to be Roman Catholic in style. Wizzo says this is the most
interesting painting of the wise men he’s ever seen.
