Detail Photos of the Archangel Gabriel in the Mosaic of the Annunciation at Mount Angel Seminary

by Sister Hilda Kleiman, OSB

A large mosaic of the Annunciation, which is located in one of the main buildings of Mount Angel Seminary, is the focus of two assignments in my writing course for students in college one.  These photos illustrate the details of the left side of the mosaic that depicts the Archangel Gabriel.  The mosaic is based on an icon written through the hand of Br. Claude Lane.

Incarnate Beauty also contains detail photos of the Holy Spirit and the Mother of God from this mosaic.
