Artist's Description

In Greek myth, a beautiful youth, son of the Boeotian river god Cephisus and the nymph Līriopē. The nymph Echo fell in love with him, but was rejected. Aphroditē punished him for his cruelty by making him fall in love with his own image reflected in water. His fruitless attempts to approach his beautiful reflection led to his despair and he wasted away until he died. The gods changed him into the flower that bears his name.

In 20th century pop culture, Bob Dylan’s song “License to Kill” refers indirectly to Narcissus: “Now he worships at an altar of a stagnant pool /And when he sees his reflection, he’s fulfilled.”!
