Leonardo painted this large panel, over two metres in breadth, in Verrocchio's studio. Although this early work is very much in keeping with the traditional style of his teacher in terms of composition and line technique, the master's touch is already clearly discernible in the background and the figures. In the golden twilight, the raised hand of the angel, with its characteristic long fingers, forms a reflection of the wings. The facial expression portrays the glad tidings he is conveying to the youthful and highly attentive Virgin Mary. The ornamental table and the stilted structure are rather incongruous features, but these were presumably painted by lesser artists. Being a restless spirit, Leonardo often turned his back on a painting once he had completed the most interesting details.
These Angel Statues, Cherubs , Nativity Scene Action Figures, and Annuncation spritual accessories from Renaissance masters Leonardo DaVinci, Raphael and more are lovely spiritual sculpture adaptations.
