Christianity is falling hard in several of the countries I have visited; none more noticeable to me than
Museums have moved in to purchase what some consider priceless art objects. Objects of mystery that can stimulate surprises for even the most seasoned of collectors… There are men who study art their entire lives, but are constantly astounded by new discoveries. Discoveries that defy our conventional understanding of reality...

Between the buildings, in a clouded sky of bark blue, is an illuminated disk emanating a golden beam of light. It is seemingly going through the solid building’s structure, directly to Mary kneeling in a room below. She has her arms folded, as if in prayer, and it raises the question as to why Crivelli depicted this well known biblical scene in such a way.
