Holy Spirit Symbol
I’m still making gradual progress on my annunciation project.
Here on the left is what I hope will be a component of the final image. It represents the Holy Spirit entering Mary at the time of the annunciation.
The red dots around the circle are a common decorative device used in manuscripts like the Book of Kells (see image below for an example from the Book of Durrow). They are supposed to act like a kind of highlighter, lifting the image from the paper, or so I’ve read. Do you think it works?
Update: I’ve added the same image on the right but without the red dots so that you can compare them. Thanks go to Hariod for that idea.
