Sarah Soward - Pluto and Proserpina


36 x 36 x 1.5 inches

Oil on canvas, gallery wrapped

Pluto and Proserpina is a continuation of the Stellae Errantes/Wandering Stars series. The imagery is inspired by a combination of the mythology of Pluto and Proserpina (think Hades and Persephone) as the dual rulers of the underworld and how Pluto, the dwarf planet, and one of its moons function as a double planetary system. The same sides always face each other.  The colors are loosely related to NASA’s images of Pluto.
