The Gospel of Matthew relates that soon after the visit of the Magi, an angel appeared to Joseph in a dream telling him to flee with Mary and the infant Jesus to Egypt, where they would be safe from the murderous designs of King Herod.

This illustration was commissioned for and originally appeared in the December 2019 issue of Yawp! a magazine dedicated to the promotion of English literature in Barak Valley, Assam, India. https://www.facebook.com/yawplittlemagazine/?tn-str=k*F
