About this artwork

The Holy spirit in the guise of a dove hovers above the scene its triple aureole casting its rays across the entire panel. The action takes place within this divine light. Buildings can be seen all along the horizon suggesting the new heavenly Jerusalem from the Book of Revelation. Most of the buildings are imaginary but one or two can be identified: the dark tower of Saint Nicholas in ghent with its needle spire on the far right in the group of buildings between the Lamb and the holy women.
