Gorgeous ancient painting depicting a female figure: the allegory that symbolises and represents the faith virtue. The female figure is inside a sacred place and carries a censer in her right hand. She turns his gaze upwards and towards a light source. The figure is majestic and well built in terms of color and proportions. The back is characterized by dark shades, to emphasize the figure and the upper part. The work is a typical "Allegory". The allegorical figuration is the systematic representation of figures, objects, scenes, etc., to which we want to give a different interpretation from that evident in itself. However, symbolic and allegorical representations are often difficult to break. These figurations are present from the first human figurative representations.

This beautiful work has been realized by one of the artists of Luca Giordano Atelier.
Luca Giordano
(Neaples, 1634 – 1705) was an Italian late Baroque painter and printmaker in etching. Fluent and decorative, he worked successfully in Naples and Rome, Florence and Venice, before spending a decade in Spain.In 1650, he was apprenticed to Ribera on the recommendation of the viceroy of Naples and his early work was heavily influenced by his teacher. Like Ribera, he painted many half-length figures of philosophers, either imaginary portraits of specific figures, or generic types.
