Persephone, the Goddess of the underworld, of springtime, flowers and vegetation is one of the most interesting figures of greek mythology. Life and death walk hand in hand in the principles and capabilities she holds. She used to live far away from the other gods, a goddess within Nature herself before the days of planting seeds and nurturing plants.
Len Metcalf images of the series 'Flesh and Stone' give a strong idea of that primordial state of being... the human body so fragile in nature... which is not kind all the times. But nature and humans are linked. We 'are' nature, we are creatures of it... no Gods. The images of Len Metcalf bring that forward: We need to find a harmonious way to coexist with all other creatures as true guardians and caretakers of it. Is Persephone waiting for us to finally get that idea and materialize it in our lifes, in our societies?
