Annunciation – Zurbaran

St. Gabriel the archangel appears to the Blessed Virgin Mary and asks her to be the mother of the Redeemer. She accepts with her Fiat: "Be it done unto me according to thy word." Cherubs, sitting in bright clouds, watch Mary make her decisive reply as the Holy Ghost descends on her from Heaven.
