|Description:||This heavenly couple, symbolising the mystical union of body and soul, seem here to represent a royal pair. The extremely stylised execution of the woman's body gives her a great deal of charm. Her whole body seems on the point of surrender. Note the detail of the hair, and of the dagger which the man wears on his hip.|
