Is the new picture that you've put in meant to imply that no shoes are worn in Heaven?

I do think it highly likely that the saints in heaven will not wear shoes(because it is a sacred place and they would not need them anyway).

However, the picture is not actually of heaven. It is 'The Golden Stairs' by Edward Burne-Jones.

It is slightly surreal depicting, a group of white clad and barefoot ladies carrying musical insruments down a gold staircase, which looks out of place on an Italian looking building with a rickety roof.

It is not really clear what this picture means.

At the time he was influenced by the Aesthetic movement that valued a kind of abstracted beauty.

God Bless
