Sandblasting gold printing with the Presentation of the Virgin

An amazing gold print with the Presentation of the Virgin Mary. It is a Theomaternal feast of the Christian Church, which is celebrated on November 21st.

The pious parents of the Virgin Mary, Anna and Joachim, being childless after twenty years of married life, begged God to give them a child. God, through an Angel, announced to them that their wish would come true, and so after nine months, Anna gave birth to a daughter, Mary, who was to become the Virgin Mary. Overjoyed, Anna promised to dedicate the child to God.

At the age of three, Mary was taken by her parents to Solomon’s Temple to fulfill the promise. Mary alone climbed the 15 steps leading to the Temple and was delivered by her parents into the hands of the priest Zacharias. The High Priest embraced her, blessed her, and said: “The Lord has magnified your name in all generations. With you the nations will be blessed, and the Lord will redeem the children of Israel.” Mary served in the Temple for twelve years, and then came under Joseph’s protection.

The Feast of the Presentation of the Virgin Mary marks the prelude to God’s good will and the proclamation of people’s salvation with the coming of Jesus Christ.
