Beyond Mythology, the Myths of Nature
The series Beyond Mythology, the Myths of Nature pays tribute to the natural world through the Gods & Goddesses of Greek Mythology which contributed to an understanding of the laws of the universe, humanity and that of our world. To illustrate the change of seasons, the myth of Hades, brother of Zeus and ruler of the underworld, and Demeter, sister & wife of Zeus, the goddess of the harvest and the earth’s fertility, whose abducted daughter, Persephone, is associated with the coming of Spring and Winter. When her daughter, Persephone, is taken away, the natural cycles were disrupted until her return. Because of the injustice that had been done to her as a result of her daughter being abducted, Demeter inflicted famine on the land. When her daughter was returned, then came Spring and abundance from nature resumed.

I, therefore, invite you into my world of fantasy where Greek Mythology and the Natural World intertwine, a fusion of images created to bring harmony and to celebrate the beauty of our natural world through mythology. The series Beyond Mythology, the Myths of Nature will be showcased in the most suitable venue where Art meets Nature at Villa Carlotta in Lake Como, whose cultural heritage is unique for its fusion of history, art and nature for to Love Art is to Love Nature.
