Fall is for #Frankincense . If you didn’t know already Boswellia #Frereana also known as #Maydi has been chewed for centuries as an ancient chewing gum. Frereana resins are much softer and chewier than other frankincense resins. It has proven difficult for harvesters to maintain grades of this resin. They are soft and goopy during harvesting. The high heat during transport clumps them together and makes the resin oily unlike Carteri and Sacra that turn into rocks. We’re working on ways to help harvesters find creative ways to transport this delicious chewing gum.
That moment when #virginmary finds out that she’s gonna have a baby -seems a bit surprised but resignful (strange that she’s wearing red though)
This is one of my fav pieces of @rijksmuseum#amsterdam - The #annunciation by Francesco di Valdambrino, 1423
The figures’ #slim#proportions and long drapery folds typify the so-called International #Gothic , an #elegant#style that flourished during the transition from the Middle Ages to the #Renaissance . This figure group was made to flank the high altar of the church of San Francesco in Pienza.
