Symbols - What does heaven look like
Kettle or teapot
A kettle or teapot is symbolic of the body and when it boils it takes on the symbolism of someone having a spiritual experience – usually ecstasy – see Types of Spiritual experience.
Which is where we get the following simple child’s rhyme from.
I'm a little teapot, short and stout
Here’s my handle, here’s my spout
When I get all steamed up, hear me shout
Just tip me up and pour me out!
