Gold printing with Sandblasting with the Annunciation of the Virgin Mary

An amazing gold print representation of the Annunciation.

The Annunciation is essentially the joyful news that the Virgin Mary received from the Archangel Gabriel that she will bring Jesus Christ into the world in a miraculous way. According to Luke the Evangelist, the event of the Annunciation took place in Nazareth. In the sixth month after the arrest of the Baptist, the Archangel Gabriel, sent by God, meets Mary at the place where she was staying and greets her: “Rejoice, graceful the Lord with you.”

It is one of the most important celebrations of Orthodoxy as it marks the beginning of salvation for man. Through the Annunciation, God’s plan to save the world through the incarnation of His Son is revealed to angels and humans. The Virgin Mary, as soon as the Archangel announces that she will give birth, is bewildered and asks him how this will be done since she does not have a husband. The Archangel Gabriel reassures her that he will take care of everything by the Holy Spirit.
