‘Persephone and Her Pet’ stands as a metaphor for the human spirit and its inherent need for emotional connection, even in the darkest of places. The fiery underworld represents the depths of our subconscious, where our hidden fears, desires, and suppressed emotions reside. In this realm, Persephone and her pet navigate the shadows together, forging a bond that transcends the boundaries of the tangible world.
