Engraved mercury mirror, 18th. century

Engraved mercury mirror representing the scene of the Annotation. The angel Gabriel on the left holding a fleur-de-lis symbol of chaste love appears to the Virgin Mary to announce to her his miraculous conception by the Holy Spirit who is also present in the scene above the Virgin. The perspective clearly visible thanks to the tiling. Perspective makes it possible to represent infinity in a finite frame: it is the vanishing point which represents infinity. The vanishing point is the symbol of God, and the perspective is the symbol of the incarnation.
