Now this is an interesting picture! How they met themselves? What is the story behind this? I'll have to search to find out, methinks. Jeanne

Thanks. It is interesting and relates to Rossetti's deep interest in the legends about Doppelgängers. I can't trace which actual legend this is - it could be symbolic of course.
