[GERMANY.THUERINGEN 30410] The Late Gothic winged altar (Flügelaltar) in the choir of the Predigerkirche in Erfurt was created by Linhart Koenberg in 1492. Here we see the birth of Christ with Joseph on the right cooking porridge for the infant. A comical detail is the little cat that is inspecting the pan and that is about to be chased by the spoon of Joseph. Photo Paul Smit.
