THISBE

and PYRAMUS

Blending the tones of clay, burgundy and terracotta. A vibrant backdrop with depth and texture.

THE LOVE STORY

So, in his grief, kills himself by falling onto his sword. His blood spills upon the mulberry trees white leaves and stains the berries. Upon her hesitant return, Thisbe finds Pyramus’s body and weeps, she too then kills herself with his sword. The Gods hearing her lament and decide to forever change the colour of the mulberry fruits into the stained red colour to forever honour forbidden love. Does this give you a little bit of Romeo & Juliet vibes? I think so too..

Living into the houses next to one another in the city of Babylon, Thisbe & Pyramus fell in love despite being forbidden by their rivalling families. They would whisper their love to each other through a single crack in one of the walls and one day arranged to meet under a mulberry tree to declare their love for one another. Thisbe arrives first and was scared to find a Lioness, fresh from a kill under the tree. She flees leaving her veil behind which the Lioness pounces on. Pyramus arrives soon after and is horrified, presuming Thisbe was killed by the Lioness.
