Solemnity of the Annunciation

This statue outside the Basilica of the Annunciation in Nazareth, Israel surprised me when I first saw it. It took me a while to realize it was a depiction of The Annunciation. Quite a bit different from traditional representations of that amazing moment when Mary said "yes" and true to the surprise she must have felt at the moment.
