In the fresco masterpiece "The Transfiguration, " Christ, vested in pure white, stands surrounded by Moses and Elijah, while below, the apostles John, Peter, and James gaze upon this awe-inspiring sight. In "Virgin and Child, " painted with meticulous detail on wood around 1500, an ethereal glow envelops the holy figures. The aureole surrounding them symbolizes their sacredness as they embody purity and grace. Moving back in time to the 15th century, we encounter "St. Francis of Assisi Receiving the Stigmata. " This tempera and gold-adorned artwork depicts Saint Francis bathed in heavenly light as he receives wounds mirroring those of Christ himself—a testament to his deep devotion. "The Virgin with the Swaddled Child" enchants us through its delicate engraving from 1520. Here again, an aureole encircles Mary and her child Jesus—signifying their divinity amidst humble surroundings. In another oil-on-wood creation titled "Adoration of the Shepherds, " dating between 1480-1500; shepherds kneel before baby Jesus under a radiant aura that emphasizes his significance to humanity's salvation story. "The Adoration of the Lamb" engraving from 1498 transports us into a mystical realm where celestial beings surround a lamb—an emblematic representation of Christ's sacrifice for mankind. Their aureoles shimmer like beacons guiding our spiritual journey. Saint Agatha gazes at us from a canvas painted around 1540—the golden halo crowning her head signifies her martyrdom for her faith—a beacon of inspiration for believers throughout history. An intricately engraved frontispiece from Apocalupsis cum figuris (1511) unveils scenes filled with divine symbolism, where aureoles adorn heavenly figures amidst the chaos of revelation.
