Contest entries for aesthetic_icons. The theme is Death and the Afterlife.|
My base shows the three heads of Cerberus, guardian of Hades in Greek mythology, from "Psyche and Cerberus," a painting in watercolor and gouache by Edmund Dulac.
The still is from "Orpheus and Euridike," painted by Friedrich Rehberg in 1810. In this Greek tale, Orpheus is allowed to bring his love, Euridice, back from the world of the dead, only if he does not turn and look back during the journey.
These are both available for use after the contest; please comment if taking. Credit for iconista is appreciated but not necessary, but please do credit the artists.
