Orante (Orans) as Early Christian Symbol
Orante della catacomba di via Anapo a Roma
Person in prayer (orantes) and a dove with an olive branch in its mouth.
The Orante is a figure with open arms, a symbol of the soul at peace in paradise, a representation of the soul in the other world as a figure (orante) with arms extended in prayer.
Orante figure from the Catacomb of Priscilla, Cubicle of the Velata, Rome (second half of the third century).This pose of arms lifted in prayer is found in thousands of figures in the catacombs, representing a soul at peace in paradise.
