What's Cabfare to the Elysian Fields...?
A return to my statue drawing shenanigans. The Lord of the Underworld isn't often depicted when compared to his more sunny or sea-going brethren. The story of his abduction of the fair Prosperina seems to be the most frequently rendered. This one, once again, was inspired by the simple direct statue carved out by the great Canova.
