Mary said “Fanks”

PIC annunciation

From John Herreid, here’s a painting I’ve never seen before:


The Annunciation by Master of the Retable of the Reyes Católicos (15th century)

Here is a detail, showing the Word of God proceeding from the mouth of the Father:

And a short interview with my daughter, who is almost 5.
