CANTICUM CANTICORUM by leadbirdie CANTICUM CANTICORUM by leadbirdie
model: Dasha

***********************
Dasha: leadbirdie.deviantart.com/gall…


UPD:
Inspiration was Canticum Canticorum 8:6 in Russian translation:
-------------------------------------------------------------
שִׂימֵנִי כַחֹותָם עַל־לִבֶּךָ כַּחֹותָם עַל־זְרֹועֶךָ כִּי־עַזָּה כַמָּוֶת אַהֲבָה קָשָׁה כִשְׁאֹול קִנְאָה רְשָׁפֶיהָ רִשְׁפֵּי אֵשׁ שַׁלְהֶבֶתְיָה׃ (WLC)
-------------------------------------------------------------
pone me ut signaculum super cor tuum ut signaculum super brachium tuum quia fortis est ut mors dilectio dura sicut inferus aemulatio lampades eius lampades ignis atque flammarum (Vulgata)
-------------------------------------------------------------
Put me as a seal upon thy heart, as a seal upon thy arm, for love is strong as death, jealousy as hard as hell, the lamps thereof are fire and flames (English from Latin)
-------------------------------------------------------------
Положи меня, как печать, на сердце твое, как перстень, на руку твою: ибо крепка, как смерть, любовь; люта, как преисподняя, ревность; стрелы ее - стрелы огненные; (Ветхий завет, синодальный перевод)
-------------------------------------------------------------


Слова "как смерть" в еврейском исходнике, по ходу, не было. Хотя в Вульгате уже есть "mors". Ну что ж, слава переводчикам, сильная метафора.

А сама картинка расползлась за 2 года по инетнетам сотнями копий. Часто ею иллюстрируют статьи про месячные. По-моему, это прикольно.
