|Description:||January 1999. St. Teresa of Avila 1515 - 1582. It portrays the spiritual doctrine of the saint. She herself is portrayed as a Doctor of the Church in a seated posture. The fountain of water represents her teaching on prayer. “The water is for the flowers” (good works). The butterfly signifies the transformation of the soul through prayer. The top panel represents in the shape of a prism her most famous work, The Interior Castle. The journey of the Christian is a journey inwards into the depths of one’s being where the King lives in light inaccessible. The Interior Castle is the finest work ever penned on Mystical Theology.|
