The Soul of Mary or The Virgin Annunciate
The doctrine of the Immaculate Conception was proclaimed by Pius IV in 1854. The title of "Nuestra SeÃ±ora De La ConcepciÃ³n Inmaculada" may be properly assigned to a variety of Marian figures. These all refer to the purity of Mary, although they may appear in a milieu of different poses and allegories.
The subject of the Inmaculada is very common in retablo painting, although there is no particular patronage related to the image.
