Hades ART DECO by rodolforever Hades ART DECO by rodolforever
God of the dead, ruler of the Underworld, which was accordingly known as Hades. In various adventures, Hades abducted the maiden Persephone, tricked the heroes Theseus and Peirithous.

The first living visitor to the Underworld, though an unwilling one, was the goddess Persephone. The only daughter of Zeus and Demeter (the goddess of grain, agriculture, and fertility), Persephone was an innocent maiden, a virgin who loved to play in the fields where eternal springtime reigned.

But Hades had other plans for Persephone: He would steal her innocence and virginity and turn her into the dreaded goddess of the Underworld

Yes! More myth characters and more art deco ...comming soon

Hope you lke it! please comment :D

Love the contrast between Hades and Persephone - and it even foreshadows the icy queen she becomes during the winter!

Someone mentioned it's a sad story - it is certainly a dark story but it ended up better than most Greek myths. Nobody was maimed or murdered, and Hades actually turned out to be a decent husband

I'm with you on that one! I've always liked Hades the most, maybe with Hermes a close second.

Yes! The Persephone story is awesome. One of the best of all the Greek myths, I think. :D
