"The Rape of Orpheus" oil painting

Not finished (obviously), I am still drawing in the details. There will be more nymphs dancing, eating, drinking, and kissing the severed head of Orpheus.

The main nymph has wrapped herself in his intestines while ecstatically raping him. 

I will have Orpheus's head looking back at the portal of hell where Eurydice stands waiting and watching. This will be part of the mythos series that I've created with "Know Thy Self" as painting #1. This will be #2. This one is pretty large compared to the first one. I'll post the dimensions when I get a chance.
