Delphine in an English Garden, or, An Allegory of the Soul's Longing for Paradise

Delphine in an English Garden

Delphine is my partner Yolanda's favorite stuffed animal. Delphine is standing on the fabric "In an English Garden", which Yolanda designed.

Contemplation reveals a further, deeper meaning. The lamb is a symbol of an innocent soul. She is looking at Paradise, and longing to enter. Is it a place she can enter, or an evanescent fantasy? If she enters, will it still be Paradise?
