Today is Epiphany

Epiphany is celebrated every January 6, marking the visit of the Three Wise Men. This piece was partially based on a 16th century painting of Ottoman astronomers as well as Islamic imagery of the angel and Jesus/Mary... I was thinking about the story of Jesus being shared by both Christianity and Islam, along with the idea of people who study the stars. The disc is called an Astrolabe, and was a primary tool for navigation. I'm not sure the story of the Wise Men can be found in the Islamic tradition, however... hopefully this works.
