Just because it's so lovely, and apt to our comments, here's a copy of the Bernini for us to gaze upon. And if you compare it to the Mary Magdalene, just above, you can see how closely Bernini followed Caravaggio's painting of her in ecstasy:

~ One of my first [crude] Art Travesty's was made from the Bernini St. Therese and the Angel.

And if you want to look at the "Assumption" post, it's here. I had just watched Close Encounters of the Third Kind again. Pondering its ending got me to thinking of how Frodo was "borne off to heaven" at the end of LotR, via the Grey Havens. In a comment further down, I post an Eagels cap, talking about another "carried off into heaven" film scene.

Did you ever get a chance to look at the actual screencap series for the Eagles scene? I made them to go with a poem of Jan's, which actually is about Frodo waking up at Cormallen. If you missed the post and would like to look at them, it's here.

*whistles "On Eagle's Wings" -- naaah, what Howard Shore put under that scene is more sublime by far!*

Doesn't he, the naughty little Cupid? But Bernini's angel seems to be enjoying his job, too.
