Death and the Maiden by FoxInShadow Death and the Maiden by FoxInShadow
[link]

The Maiden:

Pass me by! Oh, pass me by!
Go, fierce man of bones!
I am still young! Go, rather,
And do not touch me.
And do not touch me.

Death:

Give me your hand, you beautiful and tender form!
I am a friend, and come not to punish.
Be of good cheer! I am not fierce,
Softly shall you sleep in my arms!

Commission for :iconrandomonlooker: My interpretation of "Death and the Maiden" by Schubert. I hope you like it :)

Beautiful picture
Maiden dialogue with the death of a well-described place on the picture.

Beautiful.

Who can defy Death...except for one of the Immortals?

Death is no respecter of persons, He takes the young and the old, the rich and the poor, the sick and the healthy.
No man can truly defy death, because death is inevitable.

Did I just type that? Wow...

A beautiful depiction, and extremely well done with traditional means. An instant favourite, and if I was able to, I would suggest it for a DD. It's that good, well done :)
