Demeter | Greek Mythology

Demeter was the Greek goddess of harvest and fertility. She was the daughter of Kronos and Rhea and, with Zeus, the mother of Persephone.

Hades abducted Persephone to be his queen of the underworld. When he did, Demeter grieved for the loss and began to search for her daughter, and the earth became barren because of her neglect.
