don’t cry, ophelia
to me, this looks like the character Ophelia from Hamlet. She “supposedly” killed herself in the river after an altercation with Hamlet, but it was never really confirmed in the play. I think she was pushed. Anyway, this beautiful piece which I found at Welling Court in Astoria has a beautiful girl floating along with what look like skulls of her former self floating next to her, denoting death.
can you tell i was a theatre major?
