persephonecrownedallin... by pomegranatelust persephonecrownedallin... by pomegranatelust
full title: Persephone crowned all in lilies and pomegranate stains and death

Evil comes in the guise of a narcissus bloom; when picked, the evil surfaces; and Hades, in lust, draws Persephone into the Underworld to make her his queen.

Demeter, mother of Persephone and all that grows, waxes despondent and everything green on the earth withers; fields become barren deserts and petals curl brittle into themselves.

Seven pomegrante seeds decide the fate of the world: three months of cold and bitter, arid soil and birdless sky to correspond with a mother's anguish. Green and explosions of blooms when Persephone walks the earth.

the goddess who died.


I've never eaten a pomegranate, so this is the inspiration for my username. :heart:



media: various shades of artistic license; watercolor on illustration board, 18x24.5 in.

Love that arm stretching out, so wonderfully rendered, yet fluid and lively.

*gasps a little* Very soft tones, and pastels that I would envision persephone as having. Soft like a fairytale. :+fav:
