Narcissus and Echo



(Click Here for larger image)
Poor Echo was spurned by Narcissus. The musical sign of repeat on the backdrop, the shape of the vase, and the fact that the bouquet is reappearing in both directions are all representations of Echo. Narcissus is punished for his self-centered ways however. He is cursed with falling in love with his own image while being unable to accept his own love. He becomes so despondent that he withers away. In his place remains only the lonely flower.
