"The Rape of Proserpina" (Persephone) is a sculpture by the great artist Gian Lorenzo Bernini, dating from 1622. It depicts the abduction of Proserpina by the god Pluto (Hades) into the underworld. The legend goes that she comes out of the underworld every spring, bringing to life all the new plants. This sculpture, done when Bernini was in his early twenties, is magnificent -- the bodies twist and turn as if in motion, Pluto's fingers sink into Proserpina's thigh, and she flings her arms out in anguish trying to escape him. This is just one of several Bernini masterpieces in Galleria Borghese.
