EURYDICE

and ORPHEUS

TEXTURED STYLE BACKDROP WITH LIGHT GREY AND WHITE

THE LOVE STORY

Finally reaching Hades and Persephone, they were so moved by his singing, for one moment, hell stood still. They granted his wish and allowed Eurydice back to life. There is a more tragic ending however, I wanted this to be about reunited love. It is said, Orpheus was the beginning of the ‘love poem’ from all the music and words he sang during his mourn for the loss of Eurydice.

This story tugs on the heart strings quite a bit, I’ve chosen to share the happy ending rather than the sad one. Orpheus was a the greatest poet and musician whom fell in love with Eurydice, a wood Nymph. The couple were so truly and deeply in love and had the most beautiful wedding. At the wedding though, suddenly Eurydice stumbled and fell to the ground but by the time Orpheus reached her she was dead, the viper that had bitten her ankle slithered away. After the funeral Orpheus was overcome by a such a grief and mourn, hearing his heartbreaking music he was allowed to travel to the underworld in the hopes of bringing Eurydice back to life.
