Pere Serra, a Spaniard and one of the most important Catalonian painters from the late 14th Century, painted the Blessed Virgin Mary surrounded by the apostles in a painting he named 'The Pentecost' (1393-1394).

I loved everything about his image of Our Lady, but preferred her isolated from Serra's painting. His painting has her surrounded by the apostles and saints...a stunning image...but here we have Our Lady with Child, presenting us with her 'fiat'.
