This is a few days late, but never mind. Fred Sanders has written a fascinating post on the theological significance of the fact that traditional depictions of the Nativity typically show an ox and an ass bearing witness to the birth of Christ. After reading his post, I checked an old post of mine on the depiction of the Nativity in Ben-Hur (1959) to see if the screen-caps there conformed to this tradition, and sure enough, at least one of them does.
