“Nuns” live in an abbey so that they can fully dedicate themselves to praying to God. Residing in an abbey away from the earthly lifestyle, these nuns live well-ordered days woven with simplicity. Although living that way could feel restricting, perhaps the days in the abbey are also filled with compassion and peace.
There have been many illustrations uploaded on pixiv depicting a peculiar take on nuns; the nuns would often be illustrated as having strong hearts that enable them to pray continuously, purity and unselfishness, and also the strength to battle the unknown by using weapons.
Today, we’re featuring illustrations of “nuns” that possess both strength and gentleness. Enjoy!
