This The Picture Of Dorian Gray handmade pillow was inspired by the classic novel by Oscar Wilde. This beautiful accent pillow features images pages pulled right from the book, the quote “Live! Live the wonderful life that is in you! Let nothing be lost upon you. Be always searching for new sensations. Be afraid of nothing.” It also features an image of a framed book cover from a vintage edition of this creepy story. This pillow would make a great addition to your Halloween decor. Display it on a chair in a haunted library for a really cool look. This pillow would also make a great gift for someone who is a fan of Oscar Wilde or who loves to read.
I read this classic novel and loved it. The story is about a young man named Dorian Gray who is the subject of a full-length portrait in oil by Basil Hallward, an artist who is impressed and infatuated by Dorian’s beauty. Through Basil, Dorian meets Lord Henry Wotton, and he soon is enthralled by the aristocrat’s twisted view that beauty and sensual fulfillment are the only things worth pursuing in life.
Newly understanding that his beauty will fade, Dorian expresses the desire to sell his soul, to ensure that the picture, rather than he, will age and fade. The wish is granted, and Dorian pursues a life of varied and amoral experiences, while staying young and beautiful; all the while his portrait ages and records every sin. If you love spooky stories you will love this creepy tale.
