Sarah as Persephone

Okay, as a HUGE fan of the movie Labyrinth, I have to share this piece of brilliance.

DeviantArt member Janey-Jane created this great image of Rossetti's Persephone, as Sarah from Labyrinth. I think she did an outstanding job of both making it a likeness of Jennifer Connelly, and also making it quite Rossetti.

I also love how she reinterpreted the pomegranate as a peach, changed the objects in the corner to an owl feather and crystal ball. And apparently the text at the top is the story Sarah starts to tell Toby before he's taken. ("Once upon a time, there was a beautiful young girl whose stepmother always made her stay home with the baby...what no one knew was the King of the goblins had fallen in love with the girl...")

Rock on, Janey-Jane.

Hi !

I found your blog today and I'm really happy to discover someone who likes pre-rephaelite movement like me !

Because I'm french and here nobody know the pre-raphaelisme so I can't talk about it...

It should be great if we can talk about this by email ! You can contact me at !

I hope we will have conversation about pre-raphaelsim very soon,

Hi Grace
i'm a little out of my comfort zone with the technology, so this is really just a test to see if I can do it before saying anything substantive!
