Advent Calender - Day 6

This is a detail of Benozzo Gozzoli's Magnificent frescoed (wall-painting) chapel for the Medici Palace in Florence painted between 1459-62. It is one of the few parts of the Palace interior that is still in it's original state. The image shows a group of angels kneeling in worship. Their halos read different variations of 'We worship thee, we glorify thee'.
