Rapunzel

Here’s the latest in my series of Fairy Tale prints: Rapunzel.
Rapunzel

Rapunzel’s long, long hair loops and wraps around the lonely tower of her confinement, like vines strangling a tree. The thorns of the briars that surround the tower are tipped with the blood of the prince, who leapt (or was pushed) from the tower when discovered by the witch. A figure is silhouetted in the tower’s single window; is it the witch, or is it Rapunzel?
