One of the most beautiful images of this prayer book is the Annunciation on sheet 14v shown here. It was created by an artist belonging to the workshop of the master illuminator of the first prayer book of Emperor Maximilian I. The Annunciation takes place in a church here. Mary, having barely finished praying and still absorbed, is turning to face the youthful angel approaching her from behind from the left. She is holding her prayer book in her right hand. With her left hand, she is communicating with the angel, who holds the herald's staff (caduceus) in one hand, pointing up with his other hand, indicating the dove of the Holy Ghost sending golden rays towards Mary's head.
