Virgin Mary: Annunciation -- Archangel Gabriel, holding scepter and scroll inscribed AUE MARIA GRACIA, kneels on one knee before Virgin Mary, nimbed, with right hand on breast and left hand on open book, possibly on draped prie-dieu. God, cross-nimbed, is in arc of heaven at top left, emitting rays with dove of Holy Ghost from His mouth to Mary.
