Procession of the Magi in the Palazzo Medici Riccardi in Florence (1459-60)
Benozzo Gozzoli 

Cosimo de' Medici chose Benozzo Gozzoli to decorate the chapel, and this commission brought the artist back to Florence. The pictorial program of the chapel is also structured in two parts: the Procession of the Magi in the main room and the Adoration of the Child in the chancel with the Angels worshiping on the side walls.

There is an incredible amount of detail in this for people, and animals.
