“Persephone”

Bronze • Silver Patina

30”H x 10”W x 8”D

This bronze sculpture belongs to a series of four pieces entitled “The Seasons”. This piece represents Persephone, the Greek goddess of spring. It depicts the face of a woman, her eyes are closed and her chin is longing for a loving caress. Her elongated neck leads elegantly to her lips and cheeks in anticipation of an awakening. A swarm of butterflies lands fluttering on her face and neck kissing her sensually. It is the arrival of spring.
