work in progress: Mary's Lamb

I started working on a new piece over the weekend. It's a variation on my assemblage Mary Had A Little Lamb. However, in this piece, Mary is the Virgin Mary and the lamb is Christ. Below is an inspiration for the work:

Dante Gabriel Rossetti (1828-1882), Ecce Ancilla Domini! (The Annunciation), 1849-50, Oil on canvas, support: 724 x 419 mm frame: 1002 x 698 x 88 mm

A doll dress is the first element I'm working with in the piece:

I'll cover most of the surface of the dress with opaque white seed beads:
