This is why we can't take art out of our schools... lol we will have more people believing this junk.
Here is a good website someone made.
But this is not the only peculiarity of the painting: for example, to the upper left we see the Nativity Star with three other small stars, or perhaps flames.A very similar detail is present in the Madonna of the Book (1480) by Sandro Botticelli
