Persephone // Death

Death (Transformation, change which is a blessing in disguise) depicted as Persephone, Greek goddess of the underworld and spring growth.

I liked this association of the changing from winter to spring syncing with the change element of the death card and painted Persephone lying on a pale horse - as often “Death” is shown as riding – leaving the underworld at the edge of winter and slowly making her way back to the living world, shown right at the top with a blossoming spring plant.
