Rowena Hannan - Demeter

180d x240w x 430h (mm)

 Broken hearted, Demeter, the goddess of the Harvest, wandered the earth, looking for her daughter who had been taken by Hades. Demeter was so angry that she withdrew herself in loneliness, and the earth ceased to be fertile. Once her beloved daughter was returned to her, the earth was renewed by Spring. As Hades fed Persephone pomegranate seeds before he released her from the underworld, she must return there for one-third of the year. The other months she stayed with her mother. While Persephone was with Hades, Demeter refused to let anything grow and Winter began.
