There is an icon in the Orthodox church which depicts Mary as the Burning Bush, the one who is filled with the fire of God’s Spirit but not consumed. I am an artist working in the tradition of the Western church, and I am interested in exploring the nature of Mary the woman; but my image of the Annunciation bears some trace of the meaning of that icon. For I have depicted Mary as a woman filled with the fire of the Spirit, and indeed she is not consumed. But she responds to this fire with fear and awe as well as with acceptance.
 
“For She is the Breadth of the Power of God” – the 30th anniversary of the ordination of women. What woman could be more appropriate than Mary to depict this theme?
