Hades

Hades was submitted to the Zelli Porcelain Sculpture Award in October 2006 and was Highy Commended. In that year the subject was ‘Celestial Porcelain’ and for the artist to select a planet.

Linda chose the planet Pluto. Hades being the Greek name for Pluto led the artist to the Greek myths. This piece shows Hades in the act of abducting Persephone to become the object of his obsession in the underworld.
