More about this artwork
The legend of Catherine of Alexandria tell of how the aristocratic saint went in search of a husband that was as noble, beautiful, knowledgeable and rich as she was. A hermit suggests the answer in Christ. The saint sees him in a dream after her baptism and he places a ring upon her finger - a symbol of the mystical union.
