Perspherone by Sleetwealth Perspherone by Sleetwealth
Another one of my old oil paintings.
I was facinated by Persperone or Perspine myth and in this image wove in a vampire thread. Here she picks up the pomegranate in her hunger,but of course her real hunger is not for fruit. Evidently after being abducted by Hades she was bitten and turned..

Recently I have been thinking of sculpting Persperone in her traditional role.

Thank you. Theres alot I would make diffenrt if I ever did this theme again. I also love the seed of the idea of Perpherone as a vampire. I think it makes a kind of sence out of a myth that doesnt make much sence.
And I just happen to adore pomagranantes:)

:)it does look like that with the curtain behind her and how the painting is glossy and cut from its stretcher bars.
