His Adoration of the Magi is dated ca. 1305. It is located in the Cappella Scrovegni a Padova also referred to as the Arena Chapel. The name for this particular subject comes from Latin in which the title is A Magis adoratur. It is a Nativity scene, but focuses on the three kings from the Orient and their gift giving and supplication. Thus, the Nativity by itself is a manger or a cave scene with the parents, baby Jesus and farm animals and adoration scenes are a variation on the theme.
