| View Cart ⇗ | Info

“And there was one Anna, a prophetess, the daughter of Phanuel, of the tribe of Asher (she was of a great age, having lived with a husband seven years from her virginity, and she had been a widow even unto fourscore and four years), who departed not from the temple, worshipping with fastings and supplications night and day. And coming up at that very hour she gave thanks unto God, and spake of him to all them that were looking for the redemption of Jerusalem.” Luke 2:36-38 ASV

The prophetess Anna kneels before the infant Jesus who is held by Mary. Joseph looks on.
