Goddess Demeter

 


 

Demeter is the Harvest Goddess in Greek mythology.




Demeter is the goddess of grains and motherhood, and she is the mother of agriculture and the seasonal year.


She taught mankind how to create food by planting and ploughing.

She is sympathetic to pain and sadness, and she always responds to people who seek her assistance.

She is the Mother part of the Triple Goddess, together with Persephone and Hecate, who constitute the trio.



Demeter's tenacity and fury in rescuing her daughter Persephone from the underworld exemplifies a mother's protective devotion for her child.

Demeter, the Greek counterpart of the Roman goddess Ceres, is typically portrayed with a cornucopia full of fruits and grains.
