Persephone Picture

My version of the Persephone myth. Persephone has just been betrayed by Gaia and has fallen to the Underworld. The hand is that of Hades, the red flowers those she picked to trigger her abduction.

I hoped to give a 'feel' for the Eleusynian mysteries, which saw Persephone as an intermediary and intercessor between the organic, mortal world and an otherwise unapproachable and unworshipped Hades.
