FORTIS UT MORS DILECTIO
PRINT by DANIEL MITSUI
Fortis ut mors dilectio, or Love is as strong as death, is a passage from the Song of Songs. Here, I depict two woodwoses, a man and a woman, holding the ends of a lover’s knot. The woodwose, or wild man of the woods, is a figure from medieval European folklore and literature. Woodwoses appears often in both sacred and secular art, and are frequently associated with both death and eros.
