What some will do in the name of love. This sculpture illustrates the Greek myth of the Greek God of the Underworld, Pluto, in pursuit of his love Persephone (Proserpina) whom he abducted while she was gathering flowers on the plain of Enna in Sicily. (PN 4792)

In a typical Baroque composition which emphasizes dynamism, Gianlorenzo Bernini (1598-1680) depicts Pluto's pursuit in a spiraling flight of energy and struggle. The lifesize original is in the Galleria Borghese, Rome.

Pluto and Persephone statue replica is made from resin, fine details, grey white color.

Measures 14 in H x 5 in W x 5.5 in D. Weighs 6 lbs.

real touch
"..i recommend you show the left hand of pluto on persephone's thigh in a magnified picture... it is a great detail i think ... what differs from the real touch is the coldness of the stone ... astonishing!"
