Descriptions

This living picture is inspired by the painting of either/both Pierre-Paul Prud'hon(1802) and/or Eduoard Joseph Dantan(1878) and the narrative poem/play(Phrosine et Mélidore) of Pierre-Joseph Bernard. The painting shows a monk finding a drowned naked woman in the sea. Mélidore, in the picture, has assumed a hermit monks identity(that was supposed to marry Phrosine and himself) and is holding a Phrosine who he has rescued from the sea while she was swimming to him.


A magnificently dramatic pose copied from a famous painting, showing the finding of the drowned body of a beautiful girl on a seashore by an ascetic monk.
