I love this Annunciation.

My favorites are always those that depict Angel Gabriel kneeling.

I mean, can you imagine? The moment Our Lady said "Fiat," Christ took on flesh within her. I would bet every penny I have that Gabriel, recognizing the miracle of his God's Incarnation, would have dropped to his knees in complete and rapturous adoration.

This is a beautiful collection.

Thanks for sharing!
