Wise Man 3

Warsaw, Poland

Balthassar? Melchior? Gaspar?

In Christian tradition the Magi, Three Wise Men, Three Kings or Kings from the East are said to have visited Jesus after his birth, bearing gifts. They are mentioned only in the Gospel of Matthew (Mt 2) , which says that they came "from the east to Jerusalem" to worship the Christ, "born King of the Jews". Because three gifts were recorded, there are traditionally said to have been three Magi, though Matthew does not specify their number and names.

Nicely done Tomasz! I love shooting statues with a shallow DoF. I forgot to do lights and statues this year; I'm glad you didn't ;-) VERY well done - g
