Hades and Persephone

This is part of a project I had to do for my Mythology class. To put the story briefly, Hades, the Greek god of the underworld, kidnapped Persephone (the daughter of Demeter) to be his wife. Persephone did not want to be there, but eventually got out with the help of Hermes.

During her time in the underworld, Persephone refused to eat anything because that meant she would have to remain in the underworld. But when Hermes came and she was allowed to leave, she forgot and ate a pomegranate. She then had to return to the underworld for three months of the year [winter]. Look the story up online for a better understanding =]

This picture shows Persephone heatedly rejecting the food of the underworld after being kidnapped. Poor Hades. ^_^'''
