The Annunciation to Mary

This icon is based on a famous and beloved Byzantine model from the early 14th century. The image is designed in vertical halves, symbolizing the divide between heaven and earth. What unites them is Gabriel’s right hand, crossing the center line with the news of God’s mighty act of salvation.


Tempera and gold leaf on wood; 18"x24"; 2009. Private collection, England.
