A soul brought to heaven
In one of his biographies, I read that a priest was called to his deathbed to administer the Last Rites. Bouguereau repented for some of his artwork and asked the priest to bless his feet, hands and eyes that had brought shame to God. (Wish I could find the original version).

The angels are amazing, but I don't like how the soul is depicted.

I'm amazed that I don't recall ever having heard of him before this. He was a genius.

(Zen is not easy. It takes effort to attain nothingness. And then what do you have? Bupkis.)
