Edward Burne-Jones - Pyramus and Thisbe - Pyramus Draws His Sword to Slay Himself

A drawing of Pyramus drawing his sword to slay himself. Verso is a pencil sketch of a figural group for the St George Series, 'The Princess draws the fatal Lot'

Fascinating sketch by a favourite artist! My novel was partly inspired by the story of Pyramus and Thisbe and I've seen many images of the subject but never come across this one before. Thanks for sharing.

So glad - I can see why it would inspire a good writer like yourself.
