The bronze statues commemorate a local "Romeo and Juliet" type young couple who lived in Lviv, Ukraine during the 16th century. Like the better known Romeo and Juliet, the story is about faithful and doomed young lovers. The statues are located in a popular Lviv park. The little girl, almost certainly too young to understand the story, joins the young lovers. and the little boy doubtless also thought the image worth recording.
