The image at left is from the painting "Yorinda and Yoringel in the Witch's Wood," painted in 1909 by John Duncan. The painting illustrates the Grimms' fairy tale of the same name, in which two lovers wander into a wood where a witch turns the girl, Yorinda, into a nightingale and carries her off to her castle. Eventually Yoringel rescues her with the aid of a magic flower.
