Hildegard's Vision: Sky Fortress

Hildegard's Vision: Sky Fortress

Piece description from the artist

Hildegarde of Bingen was a 12th century nun. I am fascinated with her because she was a determined, accomplished, and creative person. She was also multi-talented: she was an abbess, mystic, writer, composer, artist, and scientist. Throughout her life , she experienced luminous visions. She compiled them into a manuscript and then illustrated many of the visions herself. This piece is my imagining what she saw during her beatific visions.
