Susan’s beautifully detailed and elegant portrayal of Persephone & Demeter. The story behind this piece and the painting are both emotionally powerful: an innocent maiden; a mother's grief at the abduction of her daughter and joy at her eventual return. The imagery in this piece is a paradigm of myths that explain natural processes; the yearly descent of the goddess in Winter, (as a result of ingesting Hades gift of the pomegranate), and her yearly return to Demeter in Spring, symbolized by a garland of forest flowers encircling Persephone’s head. This myth is a telling of the budding and dying of nature, the movement of the seasons. Imagery at the bottom center of the piece depicts Persephone entering the winter portal. Tears adorn Demeter's headpiece. A sensitive and powerful piece.Please Note: Shipping to continental United States ranges from $8.50 to $13.75 as determined by PayPal.

We are currently not shipping Internationally, without the buyers pre-approval of the shipping costs.
Because of the potentially prohibitive increased cost of shipping internationally, (with the ability to insure the shipment), it is necessary to determine shipping cost prior to actually placing any international orders. The least expensive way to ship internationally is through US Priority Mail International but delivery is slow. (two to four weeks)
