hades and persephone 1

By sandara
uhmmmm since people are asking...

these 2 are hades and persephone, just prior to him abducting her. (thats' why he's staring like that)

i don't know if i'll finish up the pic... this roughwork thingy seems to be growing into a new style. i think i'll go back and fix his cloak though... it looks funny.

King of shadows
King of shades
Hades was king of the Underworld
But he fell in love with a beautiful lady
Who walked up above
In her mother's greenfield
He fell in love with Persephone
Who was gathering flowers in the light of the sun
And I know how it was because
He was like me
A man in love with a woman
Singing la la la la la la la...
La la la la la la la...
And you didn't know how
And you didn't know why
But you knew that you wanted to take her home
You saw her alone there, against the sky
It was like she was someone you'd always known
It was like you were holding the world when you held her
Like yours were the arms that the whole world was in
And there were no words for the way that you felt
So you opened your mouth and you started to sing:
La la la la la la la...
Your Hades looks a great deal like Elric....

A good combination of theme and setting, you had the theme from ancient Greece of Hades and Persephone placed in a setting of a medieval fairy fantasy. The composition is also very subtle in the meeting between the two characters, which is different to the original story but fits very well. :) (Smile)

isn't Persephone the lady who lived underground for like forever and ate pomegranate seeds?
CiaraWhelan's avatar
Yeah, basically.  Hades abducted her; she ate 6 seeds while in his realm.  Her mother, Demeter, goddess of the harvest, went on a journey to find Persephone.  By the time mom found her, the goddess of spring had already eaten the seeds.  Because of that, Persephone stays in the land of the dead for 6 months a year, and we have the 4 seasons.

Don't forget, after the deal was made, Hades and Persephone became very loving towards one another; Hades hated seeing Persephone sad and did his very best to make her happy, while Persephone took her role as queen of the underworld very seriously and helped her husband in all endeavors while she was present. They were actually a better husband and wife to each other than all the other married couples among the Greek Gods.
