Notes:

Here we see a stylized “stable” with a star shining on Mary and the baby Jesus in her arms; Mary is presenting the baby boy to three men, each of whom raises one arm in salutation. One man holds a Rubik’s Cube, the second a bowl of incense, and the third a golden crown (or possibly a frightened porcupine). All the adults wear long robes; Mary is kneeling barefoot. The scene is woven into a large capital letter “N” making this a historiated initial. The text continues, to read,

Now when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judæa in the days of Herod the King, behold, there came wise men (p. 8)

This is the start of the Gospel of Matthew.
