Kore, pencil drawing of a young girl from the ancient Greece

 

This is a pencil drawing I’ve made starting from a Kore statue. These statues  represented young girls, maybe teenagers, maidens (in Greek language kore means maiden). Some say the statues were representations of the goddess Persephone also called Kore while others thing they were just girls that lived by that time in Greece and inspired the sculptors.

The legend of Kore

Posted on

In the Greek mythology Kore (the young maiden) was the juvenile aspect of Persephone, the bright side of the goddess, a goddess of spring. Kore was the parthenogenetic daughter of Demeter.

One day Kore was abducted by Hades to become his wife Persephone (destroyer of light), the queen of the underworld.

These are my drawings of the the innocent Kore and the hand of Hades rising from the ground to take her to the underworld
