Cora is another name for the goddess Persephone, kidnapped by Hades and taken to the underworld. Before releasing her, Hades tricked her into eating a pomegranate seed, the food of the dead, which forced her to return every year. The lustrous finish and warm illumination in Karl Zahn’s series evoke Cora’s annual return, which brought earthly light and warmth to the underworld.
