Date of Issue – 29 October 2010

On October 29, 2010, the Italian Post issued two new Christmas stamps. One of the stamps depicts Botticelli's famous painting "The Adoration of the Magi". "The Adoration of the Magi" is the name traditionally given to the Christian subject in the Nativity of Jesus in art in which the three Magi, represented as kings, having found Jesus by following a star, lay before him gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh, and worship him. In the church calendar, this event is commemorated in Western Christianity as the Feast of the Epiphany (January 6). The Orthodox Church commemorates the Adoration of the Magi on the Feast of the Nativity (December 25).
