I found this picture in an art gallery in the City of Bangkok. At first, I thought the person was floating on an ocean. Actually, she seems to be on a more supportive surface, something like a bed sheet.
Can you see the pathway that comes from behind her and extends all the way to the horizon? When you look carefully, it goes on right up into the sky. She seems very peaceful doesn’t she? But wait. What’s her dress resting on? There seem to be two containers with people lying on them.
Life’s full of intriguing mysteries. Sometimes, we literally can’t see the truth because of preconceptions. Art teaches us to turn the world around and see things in a different way.
I think this is a picture of two persons going up to heaven escorted by an angel. The picture is very restful. I think we should all like to pass on this way. Now that I understand it, the picture gives me a great sense of comfort. I think the artist is saying there’s somewhere we go to when we die. If I were asked to give it a name, I’d call it “The Passage”.
