A Light So Dark by Isabelle

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.”

Pyramus and Thisbē are two characters of Roman mythology, whose love story of ill-fated lovers is also a sentimental romance. The tale is told by Ovid in his Metamorphoses.

Andreas Nesselthaler - Pyramus and Thisbe (62,0 x 83,0 cm)

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.
