    The Mystical Nativity by Sandro Botticelli, ca. 1500. The story surrounding this painting is fascinating—from the images with double meanings, to the importance of the writing on the ribbons (a reference to a speech by a priest who burned many great works of art, and from whence the term "Bonfire of the Vanities" originated). Unlike his other work, this 'dangerous' painting (done on canvas) could be rolled up and hidden.
