Proserpina Picture

Finally I'm home again and I want to share some of my photographs I've taken in Italy with you.
One of the highlights was the Galleria Borghese in Roma because of the sculptures by Bernini.
Here you see a detail of the sculpture "Pluto and Proserpina" / "The Rape of Proserpina".
Proserpina is also known as Persephone and Pluto as Hades.

it's such a masterpiece! *sigh*
