Persephone's Descent Picture

Persephone, the Goddess of Fertility, is abducted by Hades, but rescued by Zeus. However, she falls into a trap set by Hades, and eats a pomegranate, which causes her to spend half the year in the Underworld. This picture portrays her return after having been on earth for the warmer months. She carries wheat, and decorates her hair with seeds of the pomegranate fruit.
