Brendan Zhang is doing his part to put pomegranates back on the map in this 'The Lament of Persephone' spread. In Greek mythology, Persephone is the wife of Hades and queen of the underworld. Persephone was tricked into eating a pomegranate which caused her to have to live one-third of the year in the underworld with Hades.
With this background story, 'The Lament of Persephone' definitely makes a little more sense. Zhang's modern interpretation of Persephone's anguish is flawless, presenting the mournful Greek goddess in a gorgeous light.
