Praying the Angelus with Art: This Week's Image

From the Liturgy of St Basil the Great:
All of creation rejoices in you, O Full of Grace,
The assembly of Angels and the race of men.
O Sanctified Temple and Rational Paradise! O Glory of Virgins!
From you, God was incarnate and became a child, our God before the ages.
He made your body into a throne, and your womb He made more spacious than the heavens.
All of creation rejoices in you, O Full of Grace! Glory to you!

Praying the Angelus with Art: This Week's Image

London artist Gloria Ssali specializes in African-inspired artwork and Catholic themes. She has done several depictions of the Annunciation. I wish I knew more about African art to be able to understand this image, but I do love how the Spirit is being "communicated"!
