Romance Comes Down, by Sidney Sime.

Anyone who is a student or fan of fantasy art will eventually find the dreamy, ornate, and spiritually laced works of Sime. I would like to see one of his works on a large scale, say, a ten-foot tall wall mural. Nothing else in the viewing room but a low couch of throw cushions, a bowl of grapes, a hookah pipe. The room is dim, only a single soft light illuminating the mural. But for now, I must settle for book and online views.
