Burne-Jones, Edward - Pygmalion
Type of Spiritual Experience
The series is called Pygmalion and describes the steps of the spiritual path as well as the Chemical wedding at the end when Darkness and Light are merged. The implication [the hand refrains] is that the merge is achieved via sexual restraint, in effect the techniques embodied in sexual stimulation.
