I am afraid I no longer offer prints of this artwork and that the original is not for sale.
I do have a number of other prints available on my Etsy store though: kmye.etsy.com
Thanks for the interest ! :)

somehow this "tree transformation" reminds me more of Daphne from the myth about Apollo and Daphne - but still a lovely piece :)

This looks great! I love your version of Persephone - the Spring Godess/blendin-with-tree thing was a very nice touch.

I'm not quite sure that this picture fits the description that Maykouri described it as, EVIL.
To Be quite honest, I find it the complete opposite!:)

This is absolutely lovely. But wouldn't it make more sense to call it Daphne? She is the nymph that ran away when being pursude by Apollo and was saved by being turned into a tree.

Thanks!
Well, several people mentionned it should be Daphne indeed. Actually, I took inspiration from a book of Greek mythology tales I had as a kid, in which Persephone turned into a dead tree whenever going to join her husband in hell, which somehow made sense as she's supposed to be a wood nymph and the story is an allegory about winter... I guess the authors took some liberties with the original tale and maybe mixed it with Daphne's, but I liked the idea all the same. :)

Very dynamic. Kind of Tim Burton-like. It certainly seems like the kind of story he would make a movie about.

This is INCREDIBLY beautiful production of Persephone, I think it's one of the most timelessly meaningful stories in greek mythology, and you nailed it. Congrats :)
