This is loosely based on the story of Orpheus and Eurydice. It's actually a wedding gift for someone, and as such I couldn't well draw the lovers as they end up in the myth (killed//head chopped off, not getting each other in the end, tragedy tragedy tragedy). ;) You have to admit the concept of death-defying love is awfully romantic, though! In my version Orpheus goes down into the underworld and actually manages to save Eurudyce. (At the expense of his lyre, though, which he has to let go of in order to hold on to her). This picture can be found as a print here.
