That scene belongs to a series of religious themes, inspired from New Testament, presenting reliefs embedded into an oval-shaped oriental setting. Here Joseph, his bundle over his shoulder, leads a donkey carrying Mary and new born Jesus. They travel to Egypt to escape from King Herod who planned to eliminate all of the male babies whom he considers as his potential rivals.
