About this painting
The right panel for The Love Reliquary, a gilded cabinet which opens to display three paintings.

The reliquary is a memento of a romance and this painting depicts the woman in her fairytale tower before the romance.

The heart-shaped hole makes a window in the cabinet through which a jewel can be seen.
