Ophelia and Persephone The sacrifice Picture

My first attempt at a self portrait (or two, to be precise).
Ophelia was sacrificed on behalf of her own stupidity. Persephone was sacrificed against her will and became the reluctant queen of the underworld in Greek mythology. In this painting, I wanted to combine the strength and the vulnerability of these two characters.
