Gerard David's The Annunciation (1506) is housed at New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art. This recounts Mary's reception of the Holy Spirit at the moment of the angel Gabriel's greeting and the inauguration of her pregnancy with Christ. The traditional iconographic elements are all present: the book of scripture of which Mary is said to have been an ardent student, the woven temple veil of which she is said to have participated in making, the throne denoting her status and lineage, and the lilies symbolizing Mary's purity and the town of Nazareth.
The plaque mounted image makes for a unique gift, treasured for years to come due to its quality UV protection matte finish and washable surface. The wood plaque measures 3/8" thick with beveled and finished edges.
