Artwork Statement

The iconic scene of the visit of the Three Wise Men to worship the baby Jesus who has just been born in a manger in Bethlehem of Judah, is recreated this time from an angle of close sympathy for the children ... It is they, girls and boys, those who now play the divine representation waiting for the great surprise that Melchor, Gaspar and Baltasar (as they did for Jesus with gold, myrrh and incense) gave them on that day that, although somewhat distant from such a significant birth, It is an indissoluble part of the Christmas holidays for all Catholic Christians in the world
