Bio: When the angel Gabriel comes before the virgin Mary, he announces the seed of God inside of her. While this is significant to the story of Jesus Christ, it is also symbolizes a profound meeting, which many come to experience in their lives - that between the Human and the Divine, that between Heaven and Earth. In my interpretations of the Announcement Mary is not always a woman, and the divine messenger may be female. The power of this motif lies not only in the represantation of a biblical event, but also in the represantation of human experience. We may all become aware of Christ inside, and when God makes Himself known to us, we may all experience the fear and initial reluctance of Mary.
