Rossetti, Dante Gabriel - Dantis Amor
Type of Spiritual Experience
The final painting is not as easy to understand as this main drawing. The butterfly is a clear reference in this context to sexual techniques as a means of spiritual experience - the wings even look like a pelvis.
Despite comments by the Christian community that this is 'Jesus', the symbolism is of the Sun, Moon and Stars.
The hat is not a cone it is indicative of sexual techniques.
