Stunning pose! I love the shading so much expressed and no faces
Body language sometimes expresses more that way xx
Another way to see it is that he is focused on her body, doesn't see her soul. Her hand is across her heart, to reinforce the symbolism of physical being a barrier to the heart. The focus on the body over the soul. He is holding her though so he 'thinks' he loves her but she sees him in his entirety. Soul > Mind > Body.
Hers is... she's turned her face to him, one arm is round him, but the other is trapped, crushed against her by the way he's holding her. He's got his arms around her, but holding her in a way that traps her, as we see by her arm; and he hasn't turned his face to meet hers ... as if she loves him, but he doesn't care about that, only that he *has* her. A heartrending image.
