Story Challenge 


It is the feast of the Annunciation this week. This when the Angel Gabriel visited Mary to tell her that she was going to have child.

Click on the link below and have a look at this wonderful painting by Jan Van Eyck. You can zoom in and study the finest details. You can see how the artist layered the paint and the cracks on the surface.  Look at the amazing colours;  the angel’s wings are simply wonderful. As you look at the painting, ask yourself the following questions, even better, talk to someone about them.

The Annunciation - a painting

How do you think Mary is feeling in this painting? Why?

Can you see any symbols in the painting? There are lots!  What are they and what do you think they mean?

If you have time, look for some other annunciation paintings and compare them. Do you notice that these symbols appear time and time again?
