When you’re young you believe love can last forever but as you get older conviction becomes naïveté. It can last forever, just not in the way we would hope. Some people may find this picture grim, personally I don’t. Maybe I empathise because it makes me feel something I’ve known. Either way this is art in its own right. I assume they were victims of the eruption on mount Vesuvius. Their love frozen in time. The kind of art only nature can create.
