Annunciation – Poussin

 In this image of the Annunciation by N. Poussin, the Blessed Virgin sits upon a cushion on the floor with a book at her side, looking at the Angel Gabriel, who kneels on one knee before her and points to Heaven. The Holy Ghost, in the form of a large white dove, rests in the air above Mary's head in a circle of light.
