The theme of the article is to present the work based on Franciszek Sitański’s, "Pszczółka w bursztynie" ("Bee in the Amber", Cracow 1627) – using metaphorical imagery coming from monastic life (vita contemplativa), and to show through ekphrasis the virtues cultivated by nuns. It also becomes apparent in relation to the figure of St. Dorothy (3rd century AD), the martyrs of Caesarea in Cappadocia, and Dorota Kątska (1558–1643), Abbess of St. Norbert’s Order in the then village of Zwierzyniec near Cracow, the role of the visual sphere and the ways of transposing the visual into language material. Attention is also paid to the function of metaphors and their power of visualization, through which the images of things and phenomena can be observed.
