Goddess Ceres


Ceres is a Roman goddess of agriculture. 

Ceres, the goddess of grains, harvest, and maternity, is in charge of rich soil and the earth's nourishment. 

  • She taught mankind how to cultivate the land, as well as how to produce, preserve, and cook food. 
  • Ceres is a sympathetic and benevolent goddess who becomes involved in the daily lives of her devotees. 

Ceres is the embodiment of a mother's devotion and commitment to her offspring, perhaps most remembered for her persistent pursuit of her abducted daughter Prosperpina. 

  • She is seen with a scepter and a basket of fruits and flowers in her hand. 
  • Demeter is her Greek equivalent.
