Panel with the Adoration of the Magi, c. 1525
tin-glazed earthenware (maiolica)

I'm curious as to why the magus kneeling before Jesus has blue feet. Perhaps he has diabetes. I'm also curious about the strange brown figures on the road above the manger. What the heck are those things?
For your additional daily Christmas season enjoyment, may I suggest The Comic Treadmill's 12 Days of Christmas? Where else will you see Christmas celebrated with a picture of Batroc the Leaper?
