About the original artwork
Narcissus

Narcissus shows the Greek myth about the beautiful man Narcissus who, whilst walking in the forest, falls in love with his reflection in a pond. However, every time he reaches out to his reflection, it disappears. He pines away beside the pond, unable te embrace his reflection, and eventually dies. Caravaggio portrays Narcissus hunched over the pond, his hand cupping the water possibly in an attempt to embrace his reflection.

As we see more often in Caravaggio’s work, the background of the painting is dark, whereas Narcissus is bathed in light, almost like an actor in a play. He has a look of melancholy on his face, almost as if he knows the impossibility of his desire.

Care for your product

Always handle the ceramic gloss tiles with care. They are for interior decorative use. You can clean your tile tableau with a soft cloth and a non-abrasive cleaning product like glassex. Do not hang the tableau in direct sunlight or fading will occur over the years. These tiles are not suitable to mount in a hot area, e.g. above an Aga or behind a stove.
