This is the Signed original Gouache painting by Roger Payne.

The tragic legend of Cyparissus who accidentally killed the stag he loved. The god Apollo shown here in human guise wouldn't let Cyparissus kill himself, instead the youth was changed into a Cypress tree so that he could continue to appreciate the grove he always loved.

Today Cypress trees are still frequently found by graves do to this association with grief. One of a series of legends of ancient Greece painted by Roger Payne.
