A RUSSIAN ICON OF THE ANNUNCIATION, CIRCA 1600.  Of good size, and composition, here the Archangel Michael depicted at left announces (BALGOVYESHCHENIE)-the good news, of  the coming birth of Christ to Mary who is shown seated at right.  At top center a dove, symbol of the Holy Spirit is shown descending from above, Luke 1:35, “And the angel answering, said to her: The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the most High shall overshadow thee. And therefore also the Holy which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God.” The larger size and shape of this icon would clearly suggest that it was an icon that once formed part of the festival tier in an iconostasis. The Annunciation is one of the twelve great Church feast days celebrated on March 25th (April 7th Western calendar). 21 inches x 15 inches (53.5 x 38 cm).
