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.
