Persephone's Descent ( R )

Although this image was created in the late Fall, with it's theme being the ancient Greek story of the descent of Persephone into Hades which provides a mythological basis for the disappearance of warmth from the Earth, I'm posting it now. With all the many things that can get in the way of one's plans it never got posted back then.

 

Yet, it's now that Persephone should be making her way OUT of Hades and back up to the surface of the Earth in order to bring about Spring and Summer that I do. So here it is, at the flip end of her story - a descending image timed to meet her ascending actuality. Besides, it was time to post a few human figures / faces again - it's been awhile.

 

This is number 1 of 2 images, the right panel of a diptych. This image is of Persephone herself, while number 2 is the face that greets her as she enters the Underworld for the duration of Fall and Winter.
