Description 1890' French machine made tapestry in an original oak frame, after the painting, " Adoration of the Magi " by the Peter Paul Rubens. The signature of the artist is woven into the tapestry.

The central figure is one of the Magi, kneeling before Jesus, who is resting on a pillow.The wise man is dressed like a priest and holds a censer, as if he were celebrating mass.

Behind him, looking rather disturbed, is the second wise man. The third, wearing a turban, is on the second row in the center. They can be identified by the gifts they're holding, as opposed to their colorful company.

The panel was made for the church of St. Michael's abbey in Antwerp.

Rubens made several paintings of the Adoration of the Magi, e.g. in 1618
