What sort of animal is this? A fat bird? Is it about to be sold in the market? Is it trying to land after seriously over-eating? Will it ever to fly again in the blue sky? Can its wings carry the weight of its full belly?
Answer: None of the above. It is the Holy Spirit, depicted in a religious painting of the 'Annunciation’ by the angel to the Virgin Mary of pregnancy, on a large painting created by Jan Provoost, now in the Palazzo Blanco in Genoa.
