Reverse Glass Painting of The Holy Family, "The Flight to Egypt".

German reverse glass or verre églomisé painting with gilding of "The Flight to Egypt" showing Jesus and Mary on a donkey with Joseph on foot.

The flight into Egypt is a biblical event described in the Gospel of Matthew (Matthew 2:13–23). Soon after the visit by the Magi, who had learned that King Herod intended to kill the infants of that area, an angel appeared to Joseph in a dream to tell him to flee to Egypt with Mary and infant son Jesus. The episode is frequently shown in art, as the final episode of the Nativity of Jesus in art, and was a common component in cycles of the Life of the Virgin as well as the Life of Christ.
