What does this mean?

Hello Marianne,

This is a print of Botticelli's Annunciation, from 15th century. Botticelli’s Annunciation was created for the funeral chapel in the church of Cestello in Florence. On its gilded original frame are these words in Latin from Luke’s Gospel, “The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee” (Luke 1:35).

The Annunciation is the subject of countless paintings down through the ages because it represents that mysterious moment when the angel Gabriel appeared to tell an ordinary virgin that she was favored by God and would conceive of a Son who would be the Savior of the world, and that because of him the world would never be the same.

Good condition.
