This mural, depicting Joseph leading The Virgin Mary and Jesus into Egypt, can be found in the Hanging Church in Cairo Egypt. Notice the specifically Egyptian symbols..such as the Nile, which forms the blue backdrop, the pyramids in the upper left hand corner, and the papyrus plants in the foreground. Those might even be date trees, on the far side of the Nile.
