Quietus : Envying Spring by mitsuki0tennyo Quietus : Envying Spring by mitsuki0tennyo
"So in this pleasant vale we stand again,
The field of Enna, now once more ablaze
With flowers that brighten as thy footstep falls,
All flowers -- but for one black blur of earth
Left by that closing chasm, thro' which the car
Of dark Aidoneus rising rapt thee hence.
And here, my child, tho' folded in thine arms,
I feel the deathless heart of motherhood
Within me shudder, lest the naked glebe
Should yawn once more into the gulf, and thence
The shrilly whinnyings of the team of Hell,
Ascending, pierce the glad and songful air,
And all at once their arch'd necks, midnight-maned,
Jet upward thro' the mid-day blossom. No!
For, see, thy foot has touch'd it; all the space
Of blank earth-baldness clothes itself afresh,
And breaks into the crocus-purple hour
That saw thee vanish."

Demeter and Persephone, Alfred Lord Tennyson

I was bored and so I drew and somehow it became a Quietus related image.

AngeLhearteD's Quietusis modern take on abduction myth and combines Naruto's characters with ancient greek mythology. The classical mythological subject of the Rape of Persephone to be exact with Sasuke as Hades and Sakura as Persephone.

It's all pretty obvious but I will explain some stuff which inspired me, to sound cool, mind you.

~ In a away this picture is supposed a vission of those who envy Sakura like Karin or in away Sasuke. Envy is often associated with the color green, so Sakura is completely dressed green... even her eye shadow is green. The swing is covered with is Ivy which in the language of flowers means Dependence, endurance while a strand of ivy fidelity.

Green suits her especially well, although I haven't found one that doesn't.

She looks so pretty! I love her dress and the leafy swing, so beautiful! The hair piece and the decorative jewels are also nicely designed.

Yes, Karin is indeed green with envy! But let's admit, the colour suits Sakura well. :heart:

Thanks so much again for contributing yet another piece! I love it! Look out for an update either later today or tomorrow at the latest.

Glad you like it, although I did change the symbolism as image a bit, most likely while wrote your comment lol. Green suits Sakura well although I am of opinion most colors do.

I could do more details cause this pic is digitally colored like the swing and jewels
