The advocation of Our Lady of the Incarnation symbolizes the mystery by which the Word of God (God the Son) is incarnated in Jesus Christ by the power of the Holy Spirit, taking on human form in obedience to God the Father to reconcile humanity, lost due to original sin.
The Virgin is depicted half-length and emerging from the pearl-white heavens in this painting. As a metaphor for hope, she is surrounded by an ethereal golden halo made up of rays and stars. Her hands are crossed over her breast, with a delicately arranged white dove representing the Holy Spirit, through whose mediation she has conceived. Her placid, trusting and tender gaze is directed towards the heavens. She is depicted as a young woman, opulently dressed in a red robe and blue cloak, dotted with stars and floral motifs executed with the finest and most exceptional gold leaf brocade work. Her fine tresses of hair fall gently in ringlets down the sides of her face and over her shoulders.
