Shepherds: Annunciation -- Angel, in arc of heaven, emanating rays, appears to five shepherds, including one woman, with left hand on forehead and with right hand holding hand of man sleeping with his head on her lap, one man seated with left hand raised toward head, one leaning on wattle fence, and one standing with crook, all in fields, surrounded by flocks of sheep. The angel points with left hand toward building in background at right, above which is lighted sky.
