I don't know about the fairy tale, but this painting is beautiful.
I love how the raven on her shoulder looks cheeky.

I have a question: Is she about to eat her finger?

Lol no, in the story her brothers are turned into ravens - she goes to the mountain to free them from their curse but has no key to unlock the gate so she cuts off her finger to use it as a key

Gotta love Grimm fairy tales and their love for a bit of gore!

"Life owner" is fake. Google it. It was an old email hoax to scare people. I dunno about this new hacker but it's probably fake as well. Lots of the "hackers" people spread around on this site are made-up.

Is it wrong for me to hear the ravens call out "Nevermore" before I think of the actual preformance? But this is still amazing<3
