These are images from mediaeval or Renassance paintings, that use artistic conventions current in that era to convey the idea of divine intervention of some sort. Many of them have frequently been discussed on various forums in recent years.

The Annunciation, with Saint Emidius: Carlo Crivelli

The Archangel Gabriel descends from God to tell the Virgin that she is to bear a child – a moment known as the Annunciation – but has been distracted from his mission by a bishop saint, who has stopped him in the street of a Renaissance town. This is Saint Emidius, patron saint of the town of Ascoli Piceno in the Italian Marches. This painting is unique in showing a local saint effectively intervening in a biblical event

...

Just the other side of the wall we see Mary kneeling in a splendid Renaissance palace, about to be struck by a heavenly bolt of light which will transform her into the mother of God.

Around them the town goes on, oblivious. Only a small child peering round the corner of the steps and a young man gazing up at the sky have noticed the flash which carries the dove of the Holy Ghost down from heaven, through a convenient golden hole in the wall and to Mary.

Carlo Crivelli (about 1430/5) - [www.nationalgallery.org.uk]
