THE JOURNEY OF THE THREE KINGS
Matthew 2:9

Led by the youngest magus, the kings ride to Bethlehem, following the star. They journey from left to right. A particularly theatrical effect is achieved by pairing this scene with p27, the Return of the Three Kings, where they troop from right to left, this time led by the old man.
