Pyramus & Thisbe in Art.  I found the Cupid in the background quite interesting.  It is Cupid, but can also be an angel foreshadowing Thisbe's death that comes in the next scene.

A Light So Dark by Isabelle  Artwork by John William Waterhouse  “Thisbe,” a muffled voice called from the other side of the cracked wall.    Her breath hitched. “Yes,” was her strangled cry, as her eyes slipped closed and her head fell back against the wall. “Every night I fear it will be someone else’s voice I hear.”    “Never. So long as I live I will take my place beside you.”
