LOOK DEEPER

As medieval practices go, ‘a cup’ was awarded to the winner of a ‘courtly competition’ by a woman considered ‘’the queen of love and beauty”.


Dressed in droopy medieval attire, with a hint of coyness playing on her sublime face, Rossetti’s long-time favorite model Alex Wilding looks breathtaking in her avatar of the golden ‘loving cup’ bearer. Behind her are four brass plates depicting scenes from the Bible, and ivy leaves symbolizing loyalty and eternity.


The inscription reads, Douce nuit et joyeux jour/A chevalier de bel amour, which translates to Sweet night and happy days/To the well-loved knight, suggesting that she may be offering a toast to her lover on his way to war.

Each Desire Desire case comes with a lifetime warranty for the print.*
