Hand-painted wooden Annunciation icon on a golden background. Angel Gabriel is shown from a side view to emphasize depth and dynamic movement unlike forward-facing figures found in other icons. Both angel Gabriel and the Virgin Mary stand out against the background constructed of architectural details connected in the middle of the picture. The Annunciation theme had been well established in icon painting and could be traced to the traditional Byzantine prototypes.
