This sculpture captures the moment in the myth when Pyramus kills himself for mistakenly believing that Thisbe had been killed by a lion. Thisbe then comes back to their meeting point and is horrified to see Pyramus dead. She then proceeds to kill herself because she cannot live without him. (Leonardo Lapiciarella, 1745/1750)
