Based off of the Russian Folktale " The Enchanted Princess". She is crying because her soon to be husband, the one who could break the spell, got put into a deep sleep from a poisoned apple. So basically Snow White but backwards.... except wwaaaaay better.
Russians do it right. (on a side note, her expression is how i feel about finals right now)
The top ill is from the same tale but this is her prince enduring some tormenting just to be with her and pass a test. He had to do this for 3 nights and not move an inch as demons and spirits would harass him all night long.
