“i can’t think of any better representation of beauty than someone who is unafraid to be herself”
i had the idea of wanting to portray the death of narcissus in a different manner. in the composite, after narcissus had seen his reflection not wanting to leave its side, a storm was approaching from afar. the water then became wild, turning it to a murky sight from crystal clear thus losing the his reflection. narcissus panicked and struggled to find the beauty that he laid his eyes upon not paying attention to danger that awaits him. feeling cold already, narcissus could not feel the raging waves hitting behind him. with one strong swift, he accidentally hit his head on the rocks, knocking him unconscious. narcissus's body slipped under the raging waters never to be seen again.
we all know the story of narcissus, son of a river god named cephissus and a nymph named liriope. according to legend, narcissus was renowned for his beauty and that eventually led him to his own death. the story goes that nemesis attracted narcissus to the people, wherein he saw his very own reflection and fell in love with it. unable to leave the beauty of his reflection, narcissus died. there is different story surrounding the death of narcissus, it is said that he committed suicide because his love cannot be addressed.
Zdravo from vis! 🇭🇷
this little island was our first stop while hopping around the croatian islands. not only is it the filming location for mamma mia, (where i’ve been dying to visit since i saw the movie, but i, like many other people, thought it was in greece 😅) but it is filled with the most desolate and hidden beauty around every corner you turn. 🌸
for those who have asked, yes, croatia is open to all us citizens that arrive with the proper precautions, and yes, i will be blogging anything and everything you need to know while i’m here!
stay updated with my croatia highlights and stories in the meantime, there’s much more to come!
