Glad you liked it the painting. I only took a portion of it. Re the baby-like
qualities, that's speaking only relatively, as far as these paintings of those
times go. Usually, they make him look like a little old man and very stern.
I hope someone knows the painter's name...

Wonderful well-focused close-up.
Striking in that everyone -including the 'baby' Jesus - is looking left (including the bird) except for the man in toga.
Disagree about the baby. Look at the well-coifed hairdo! And adult-appearing eyes.
