Designed for private devotion this very fine plaque depicts the Archangel Gabriel, framed in the center, at the moment of announcing to the Virgin Mary that she has conceived the Son of God. He is dressed in the style of a Russian nobleman of the 16th Century, with hands crossed over the chest and a geometrically ornate halo. The lovely background of green, yellow, white and blue enamel adds dimension and perspective. Surrounding the angel are fifteen saints each set in a roundel and connected by leafy branches, as if a tree of saintly life. In the center at top is Christ offering His blessings, with His Mother to His right and St. John the Baptist at left. Within the frame of this plaque is represented the hierarchy of the Church, of holy figures both human and spirit, and the beautiful Archangel presenting his miraculous message not only to the Mother of God, but also to all humanity. - (PF.5197)
