This nymph is elusive - her face is somewhat hidden in the ivy that encircles her. I initially had a hard time capturing the original picture - the original is so delicately painted that I was never satisfied with the print. After several attempts, however, I was able to achieve a print that was very close to the original. Many people have been vert taken with this picture. I couldn't decide on her name for awhile either. She struck me as Ivy Goddess, the Spirit of Ivy, the essence of ivy, the Green Goddess, and even as Daphne, although Daphne was transformed into a laurel tree, not ivy, after being pursued by Apollo.
