A woman dressed in a transparent veil floats in a starry sky roamed by other flying figures.
This picture illustrates the following passage:
He says the soul unto its star returns,
Believing it to have been severed thence
Whenever nature gave it as a form.
(Paradiso, Canto IV. Translation: Henry W. Longfellow.)
The caption reads in the original French:
Timée sent comme il parle. Il dit que chaque âme retourne à son étoile.
