PLUTO’S STORY

‘Pluto in revolt against his wife Persephone at her decision to leave him for good’

“This piece, inspired by Greco-Roman mythology(1), showcases a snapshot of a scene concocted in my mind. Whilst referring to ‘Pluto god of the underworld’, I delighted in using my impression of the universe and ‘Pluto the declassified planet’ to depict the scene. After all, the planet was named after the god. There are slight variations to the story, the general gist of my favourite one is this; Pluto is said to have been a stern ruler but very loving towards his wife, Persephone. I began to wonder how such a husband would feel and react should she decide and devise a way to leave him, for good. So, I went to work.

The scene is set in Hades amidst the souls of the afterlife, who witness Pluto in passionate rage as he confronts his wife. Pluto’s soul awash with emotion; love, pain, heartache, angst, despair, betrayal, denial. Persephone is faded and distant, her back towards him a sign of her irrevocable decision. But why is Persephone leaving? Has she found a new lover? Does her heart now belong to someone else? Or perhaps she, is indeed revolting against him and meeting out revenge for abducting her from her mother…” – Elysse

(1) William Hansen, Classical Mythology…, pg. 12 (Oxford University Press, 2005)
The Greeks called the gods of the underworld Hades and Persephone. The Romans called them Pluto and Proserpina. I have preferred to use the monikers Pluto and Persephone for the gods, and Hades for the physical place of the underworld.
