From Burne-Jones' cycle of paintings "The Legend of Briar Rose" (the Sleeping Beauty). Here, the Sleeping Beauty, having pricked her finger on a spindle and been cast into a deep sleep, lies in her bower on a richly draped couch with her ladies-in-waiting asleep just where they were when the spell was cast, one still reaching toward a mirror and coffer of jewels. Over time, thorny rose brambles have grown through the castle windows and are draping the curtain behind the couch.
Here lies the hoarded love the key(Pre-Raphaelite, 1890)
To All the treasure that shall be
Come fated heart the gift to take
And smite the sleeping world awake. - William Morris
