    • I noticed that first with Breughel. It is contrary to doctrine, far too Monophysite: these children have the knowledge of God, but Jesus was human. Artists seem afraid of depicting him as a baby. Icons have him with too small a head, more adult proportions.

      • Yes, it does get me in an uncomfortable mood when I see artists depicting baby Jesus with a face that does not fit the human baby – as you say Jesus was human in physique at least and that is how his face or head should be – Godly knowledge can be depicted in other ways I think 🙂
