The Flight to Egypt

Paining from the church Uhra Kidane Mehret

The picture to the left shows Mary so weakened that she cannot give milk to Jesus. Josef in despair puts his hands to his head, while Mary and Jesus from a cloud are looking down from another world.

The picture to the right shows how God then sent a deer that could provide Jesus with milk.
