Annunciations – Tuesday Part 2

It is Thursday morning, and I am still working on Tuesday’s material.
Suffice it to say, Wednesday was very full, and I am trying to keep things in order.

This is a continuation, or rather, specialization of the MET experience.

My father has long had an interest in Annunciations. We have one hanging in the living room.
That is in my parents house.

Once upon a time I had explained much of the symbolism in Annunciations.
A few include: Lily = Purity, Enclosed garden = Purity, Cross = Virgin, Dove = Holy Spirit, the Virgin’s ear canted upward = the opening for conception. I don’t know what the open book means. The angel is the Archangel Gabriel.

Anyone is welcome to correct, or expand on, these explanations.

We saw lots of Annunciations, and some of them turned out better than others.

    Did you go to the Cloisters? That place is AWESOME. I think it’s part of the Met.

      No – we did not have time to fit the Cloisters into our schedule. Ashlan had suggested it for my day alone, but I chose the closer High Line as my solo. My sister went to the Cloisters on Friday, but said it was too rainy to fully enjoy.
