The Ecstasy of Saint Teresa
This bernini artwork sculpture depicts Santa Teresa’s vision of seeing God in a hallucination, expressing her longing for God’s love. She was lying on the floating clouds, her wide sleeves drooping down, her eyes closed lightly, her lips slightly parted, her face pale, and in a coma she prayed for God’s love. In front of her, the little angel with a mischievous face shot a golden arrow into her chest. The bernini artwork sculpture depicts Teresa’s morbid state with hard marble, expressing the softest heart of a woman who is craving for love. The little angel represents happiness, forming a harmonious rhythm with Teresa’s lying posture, which means the collision of pain and happiness. Theresa lay there, her toes slightly raised. Immerse yourself in the climax of unparalleled excitement. Extreme longing and intoxication, extreme pain and joy, not only appeared on Theresa’s face, but also on that robe. This bernini artwork sculpture depicts the complicated inner feelings of the girl written in the notes, turning the mysterious morbid state into a woman’s obsession with love and desire under the hazy consciousness. Her coma and loss of control are typical manifestations of the girl’s thoughts of spring. Under the guise of a mysterious religious cloak, Bernini used hard stones to express the essence of a woman’s soul.
