The Underworld Book Picture

"She was Ready". The Underworld Book - Merryl Key 2013
I made 23 dolls out of hessian, felt and rubber to tell the story of Persephone's journey through the Underworld as a diorama. It took 2 1/2 years to complete the project and took on a life of its own as I made it, including The Underworld Book which accompanied the Diorama. This is the Final page in the Underworld Book where Persephone has journeyed back to the surface of the Upperworld. "She was ready"
