StampNews.com got to know that Monco Post is to release a stamp that is the part of the Christmas series stamps. The item depicts The Adoration of the Magi, a painting by the Italian artist Taddeo di Bartolo. This issue is to be unveiled und put into circulation on the 3d of November.

The Adoration of the Magi is the name traditionally given to the subject in the Nativity of Jesus in art in which the three Magi, represented as kings, especially in the West, having found Jesus by following a star, lay before him gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh, and worship him.

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). Christian iconography has considerably expanded the bare account of the Biblical Magi given in the second chapter of the Gospel of Matthew (2:1-22) and used it to press the point that Jesus was recognized, from his earliest infancy, as king of the earth.
