The Return of Persephone Picture

I find quite a lot of inspiration from Greek and Roman mythology, and Persephone stands out as one of the most interesting female deities. Like Tennyson's Lady of Shalott and Shakespeare's Mariana, Persephone represents the "embowered woman". Unlike the others, however, Persephone escapes her imprisonment for four months every year; it is her return to the world, and the beauty which she endows to a lifeless earth that has inspired this photograph.
