Tissot's Annunciation


James Tissot spent ten years in Palestine, studying the clothes, the features of the locals, the flora, fauna, and geography before the displayed his massive life of Christ exhibit. His annunciation is one of my favorites.

Looks like the six winged angel of Isaiah chapter 6. What a perfect picture for Advent.
