Flight into Egypt (2) -
Artist Commentary:Â Joseph, Mary, and the Christ Child camp in the desert at night as they flee to Egypt. The stark surroundings accentuate their plight, the danger they are in, the darkness of the world. As the mother nurses her child, the father stands watch and plays gently on a flute, the music soothing the Child to sleep. Their entire life is founded on mutual trust, love, sacrifice, and abandonment to divine providence.
