* The end of ''Theatre/LesMiserables'' features Valjean's death and ascension to heaven. He is accompanied by Fantine and Eponine, and when he reaches heaven, Enjolras, Gavroche, and the other dead students are waiting for him, often on the barricade. The 2012 film provides a more complete picture by showing heaven a giant barricade across a large square in Paris showed earlier in the movie. Curiously, the lyrics describe heaven completely differently:
--->"They will live again in freedom in the Garden of the Lord/We will walk behind the plowshare, we will put away the sword/The chain will be broken and all men will have their reward!"
* In the penultimate song of ''Theatre/{{Hamilton}}'', Hamilton catches "a glimpse of the other side" as Burr's bullet travels in slow-motion towards him. No description of heaven itself is given, but he does see his mother, his son Philip, John Laurens, and George Washington.

* Through the windows from ''Art/TheLastSupper'', one can see a lush landscape filled with beautiful mountains and rivers. The lack of any buildings from the view and it's sheer beauty give some indication that the scenery is meant to represent Heaven.

** C.S. Lewis also has as a nontraditional heaven as part of the ''Chronicles of {{Narnia}}'', which [[spoiler: looks ''almost'' identical to the 'normal' world]], or rather the 'normal' world is almost identical to Heaven; as Professor Digory Kirke puts it in ''Literature/TheLastBattle'':

* ''ItsAWonderfulLife'' uses the "nebula of lights" version in the opening, showing three stars flashing as the angels talk in a voice over.

* In the WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic fandom, [[http://www.fimfiction.net/user/kalash93 Kalash93]] and [[http://www.fimfiction.net/user/The+Descendant TheDescendant]] both mention something called The Well of Souls. All that's known is that it's some sort of afterlife, although the way it is used in their stories makes it roughly an analogy for heaven.

* The heaven of Dante's ''DivineComedy'' is the "nebula of lights" version, with radiant souls flocking around in symbolic constellations like a rose, a cross and an eagle-- although in illustrations, there's usually some fluffy clouds there as well.

* ''DeadLikeMe'' never shows Heaven, but does show what the passage there looks like: whatever the deceased most loved to do in life. One guy sees a cliff he once dived off. A girl in the first episode sees a carnival. The Reapers that take the souls can see these images too, but are not allowed to enter them. [[spoiler: One Reaper does, halfway through the first season, and completely vanishes. Despite Rube trying to find out what happened to her, it's left entirely unanswered.]]
