Orpheus Picture

I'm working on a triptych (I just love using that word) depicting the tragic story of Orpheus and Eurydice. I've been planning on it for 2 yrs now and wheter I'll ever finish it or not remains to be seen. It will consist of a large central piece with the motive of Eurydice's death and two portraity pictrures of the separated lovers. I'm quite satisfied with the other two but his majesty the king of Thebes really gives me trouble. I do like this piece but it just doesn't give you that archaic and mystical feeling I'm after.
