The Portinari Altarpiece was a triptych originally comissioned by Tommaso Portinari. It features Portinari; his two sons and their patron saints; Portinari’s wife, Maria Baroncelli, and her daughter alongside St Margaret & Mary Magdalen. The donors and their saints are all contained in the two side panels. The central panel is Mary, Joseph, and Christ as an infant being adored by angels and the three shepherds, who are portrayed as commoners.
The painting contains a ton of symbolism as well, including a lot of flowers that mean all kinds of different things, like orange lilies for the Passion and corn for the Eucharist and etc.
