Proserpina & Plutone

My 2017 starts with this my piece created for Sugar Myths and fantasies Collaboration 2.0.
My work is inspired by Proserpina & Plutone.
Proserpina, daughter of Ceres, was a goddess who took care of the prosperity of the earth. She was abducted by Pluto, king of the dead, whilst she was picking flowers. She the became his wife and was the queen of the underworld. Proserpina’s mother had asked Jupiter to release her daughter and threatened to stop the growth of fruit and vegetables; creating barren lands. Pluto obeyed, but before letting Proserpina go he made her eat six pomegranate seeds because those who have eaten the food of the dead could not return to the world of the living. This meant that she would have to live six months of each year with him and stay the rest with her mother.
Hope you like it.
