Hades Abducting Persephone
This wasn’t as bad as it looks. [Painting by Simone Pignoni, c. 1650.]

Hades, Aphrodite, and Cupid
Here I am coming up from the underworld for a vacay. That's Aphrodite and Cupid on that hill. [Engraving by Virgil Solis, 1581.]

Orpheus in the Underworld
Orpheus pays me a visit. [Painting by Henryk Siemiradzki, late 1800s.]

Statue of Hades
Here I am gracing the grounds of a chateau in France. I could really use some sunscreen – the underworld makes me paler than a ghost's butt. [Sculpture by Henri Chapu, at the Château de Chantilly. Photograph by Wikipedia user Mel22, 2011.]

Orpheus and Eurydice
That's me in the corner. Orpheus was all happy about getting his wife back, right before it all went to Hades… [Painting by Jean Raoux, c. 1718-1720.]

Bust of Hades
It looks like my head fell off at some point… I'm glad they glued it back on. [Roman copy of a Greek sculpture from the 5th century BC; mantle added later. Photo by Marie-Lan Nguyen.]
