Coming to Bethlehem to be taxed



It's that day: coming Bethlehem to be taxed. Mary & Joseph arrive at a busy moment when there wil be no room at the inn. By Pieter Bruegel the Elder, 1566.

Snowball fight in Bruegel's version of Bethlehem which sure looks a lot like 16th century Amsterdam.

I have seen these works by Pieter Bruegel before. They are good.
