Here is what every tourist with a guidebook wants to see in Lorenzkirche: the Annunciation (literally "Angel's greeting") by Veit Stoss (1517-19). It is full of small sculptures and paintings that one doesn't see at first sight. Below there is the byblical snake who tempted Eve, with the apple in its mouth. Unfortunately, you cannot see it well in this photo. The last picture shows the backside of the Annunciation, which is also interesting for the round paintings of the Sun and the Moon.
