Artist's description:

The Narcissus Myth
by Ernie Vecchio
“ ... ... In this context, the only love he will ever know is the echo of his own voice. Because of vanity and false pride, even this will fade.
Ultimately, having a desire (thirst) to understand the emotions that surrounds him, he will attempt to connect with the source.
It is then that he sees his reflection and falls in love. However, he thinks this reflection is ‘the other’ or God. Little does he know that – it is! (Narcissus is the son of a God in the Myth)

A single attempt to accept (kiss) what he sees…makes it disappear.
Each attempt to touch this illusive image of the self…disappears in the touching. Narcissus is heartbroken and alone…not realizing that it is his own divinity and self-acceptance that he longs for.
As life would have it, the desire for connection, understanding, and proximity to the other becomes so great…that the longing kills Narcissus.

In the end, Narcissus takes on his true form (and potential) – a flower. His true beauty occurs with the flowering (understanding) of his feelings. ... ... . ”
