Persephone Awakening by walkmaz Persephone Awakening by walkmaz
"Persephone was abducted by Hades, the god-king of the underworld. The myth of her abduction represents her function as the personification of vegetation which shoots forth in spring and withdraws into the earth after harvest; hence she is associated with spring."

People are using this image all over Facebook and attributing it to an artist named Zabani. Where the heck did that come from?  www.facebook.com/lightbodywoma…

Very nice! It's the funniest thing that we both used the same "buried" principle (see my painting Kitsune dating from 2010 - posted on here somewhere 2011 I think). I don't do digital, I'm afraid (too old for that :) ), just mixed media brush and pencil work. Do you make all the photos yourself too? I like how your Persephone looks almost like a classical painting (she's been photographed, though, hasn't she?).

Thank you! That figure is supposed to be Hades with his invisibility cloak.

So amazingly beautiful, and such a perfect reminder that although all seems barren in the Winter season, life is still waiting beneath the Earth.
