Do you know what is the superiority of this Design Toscano Annunciation to The Virgin Mary?
When the angel Gabriel announced to Mary that she had been chosen to be the mother of the Christ, Mary answered, “Here I am, the handmaid of the Lord.” The model of humility and obedience, the mother of Jesus in this famous work of art serves as a daily reminder of how our hearts, too, are meant to respond to God. Pioneers of Renaissance art, the Della Robbie family artisans elevated the terra cotta art form by marrying it with painting and glazing techniques that emphasize light and ideal beauty. Our Design Toscana-exclusive version is cast in quality designer resin to capture detail from Mary's crowning halo to the horns of plenty at her feet. It is then hand painted in light-enhancing glazes luding the characteristic Della Robbie blue. Commemorate baptisms, births, anniversaries, weddings, ordinations and other special spiritual occasions with our meaningful statuary collection. 18″Wx1″Dx14 “H. 5 lbs.
I don't know why they say this is "by Della Robbia" when he's been dead for 500 years, and this work is based on paintings by Boticelli and da Vinci. Exquisitely crafted except for the hands, which appear blunt ans swollen when compared to the faces.
