Joan of Arc has been in the Library for hundreds of years! That really sucks for her.
[Fun Fact: Cyrus is surrounded here with his
canonical symbolic plant, the cypress tree! Cypress trees are usually a

that particular painting while in a mental hospital, and no doubt he
was reflecting on the end of his life.]
