      DESCRIPTION

      In Greek religion and myth, Demeter was the goddess of harvest and fertility. Her teaching the art of sowing and ploughing made it possible for mankind to end their wandering nomadic lifestyle. However when Hades abducted her daughter Persephone to the underworld, Demeter's grief caused chaos in the land as she put off her duties in search or her daughter in vain. With intervention from Zeus, Persephone was finally able to return to Demeter 9 out of 12 months each year. During those 3 months, Demeter's earth is barren, thus is the origin of the four seasons, with Winter being the time of Demeter's grief, and Spring being the return of Persephone. This statue is beautifully designed, sculpted and handcrafted to the finest detail in cold cast metal (bronze/pewter) finish.

      Material: Cold Cast Bronze
