Jesus meditating upon the Three Wise Men

"Whatever happened to those three guys who dropped this stuff off, Ma?" It is not known if the youth Jesus asked this of his mother, Mary. A possible motivation for him to visit the East, the Three Wise Men (or three Kings as some would say) and their expensive gifts must at least generated some curiosity on the part of the young Jesus. Here, Jesus is contemplating that event and the wondrous land he imagines they came from. In the background, through the window, is seen a concerned Joseph and Mary.
