The HALO – or Nimbus is used as a symbol of sanctity. It is usually behind and above the holy person’s head. It can be shown as a simple circle or a glowing surface. At one time it was only reserved when an artist depicted Christ. After the fourth century, however, it was gradually used for depictions of angels, the Virgin Mary, and finally to all the Christian Saints.
