A strange annunciation

This illumination has languished on my desktop (not as a wallpaper, though) for a week now. I have even forgotten where I have taken it from but it still makes me chuckle whenever I view it. I wonder if medieval readers thought there was something strange about this rendering of the annunciation of the three Magis. No comment is needed. I would just draw attention to the lowermost figure as he appears to be the youngest of all three men, the only one without a beard.
