This is one of the most magical places in Florence. I have taken the same photograph (when the attendants were looking the other way!) The rest of San Marco is just as magical.
The Annunciation was a popular theme for Fra Angelico. The best known is probably the version in the Prado; there is another fine one in the Diocesan gallery in Cortona. All show the Virgin in an attitude of humilitato - arms crossed across her breast.
Each version shows, in addition, the expulsion of Adan and Eve from paradise - the incarnation and ultimate sacrifice of Christ will redeem mankind from this original sin.

Living completes will experience their own aging which will change the look with age and wear. You should think of this when making your option and choose if these changes will fit you. Oil Rubbed Bronze Kitchen Faucets will not be as hard to keep on a regular foundation, where bright completes usually focus on finger prints and need more regular improving up.
