Love on Earth

It's interesting to explore Norman Lindsay's work in detail—such complex imagery that oft has esoteric and erotic symbolism. His fascination with hermaphroditism is fascinating in itself. This is a print of the prep drawing for an etching.

Cool how he has woven the background couples to look like, in passing, a standard bucolic background. Second glance reveals that this is not really the case.
