Seated within an elaborate room, the Virgin Mary looks away from her book on the reading lectern, startled by the sudden entrance of the archangel Gabriel. He holds a scroll with the words Ave gracia plena (“Hail [Mary], full of grace”). Above, God the Father sends the infant Jesus bearing a cross toward the Virgin, preceded by the dove of the Holy Spirit. They descend in the direction of the Virgin. The enclosed garden emphasizes her virginity, and the single white lily placed in an elaborate pottery jar symbolizes her purity.
