"Waterfall of Lost Souls"

This piece was created through the stories I heard about the God of the Underworld, Hades. I first heard the stories of Hades during my elementary years, when our teacher was obsessed with mythology and spent almost a whole year teaching us about it. In my mind, when I heard the story of Hades and the souls that occupied the waters he controlled, I normally thought of darkness and horror. Then I started thinking that in nature, a rule of thumb is that the more colorful something is, the deadlier it is. The more beautiful something is, the more attracted one is to touch and look at it, like a beautiful colorful snake, whose bite can be so deadly that it kills. That's how I started to see the waters the souls occupied as a deadly beautiful place, drawing people in to take a swim.
