charlotte22 Demeter, goddess of the harvest, has one daughter, Persephone, the maiden of spring. Hades, god of the Underworld, kidnaps Persephone and brings her down to be his wife in the Underworld; but Demeter,was so sad that made the world a "frozen desert".Finally, Zeus intervenes by telling Hermes to go down to the underworld and bring Persephone back. Hades knows he must agree to Zeus’s terms, but he gives Persephone a pomegranate seed, knowing that if she eats it she will have to return to him. With her daughter back, Demeter leaves her temple and joins the other gods on Mount Olympus. But because Persephone does eat the pomegranate seed, she must return to the Underworld for four months a year. In these months, Demeter grieves and the earth goes through winter. -- The rape of Proserpina, Gian Lorenzo Bernini. #art#sculpture#perfection#day#light#rapeofproserpine#magnificent#beauty#italian#italiansdoitbetter#light#bernini#galleriaborghese#museum#love#bw#artistic#capture#prospective#aroundtheworld#culture#myth#greek#roman 2mon
