Persephone and Hades Enthroned

Persephone - Hades Plaque
7 ¾" silver/black resin plaque

King and Queen of the Underworld. In the classic Eleusinian myth, she rises from the earth each spring to join her mother Demeter, the grain goddess, and bring fertility back to the earth.

Hades means "the Unseen." His Roman name Pluto means "the Rich" a reference to the plentiful mineral resources beneath the ground and fertility of the Earth. Pluto is worshiped as the god of wealth, since the wealth of the earth comes from what lies below. The attributes of Hades include his 3 headed watchdog Cerberus.

Here they are holding symbols associated with their worship:
grain, parsley, a rooster and a bowl.
[Greek Marble relief, 480 B.C.E.]

“Holy Maiden of the Springtime meadow…
Pale Queen of Hades’ realm.”

   Persephone is the Greek Goddess of the underworld and the daughter of Zeus and Demeter. Persephone was such a beautiful young woman that everyone loved her, and the God of the underworld, Hades, wanted her for himself. One day, when she was collecting flowers on the plain of Enna, the earth suddenly opened and Hades rose up from the gap and abducted her. None but Zeus, and the all-seeing sun, Helios, had noticed it.

Broken-hearted, Demeter wandered the earth, looking for her daughter until Helios revealed what had happened. This mother Goddess of the harvest was so grieved, she withdrew herself in loneliness, and the earth ceased to be fertile. Zeus, concerned about the state of the harvest, bargains with Demeter and the terms are set for her release. She may return if she has not eaten. Meanwhile, Hades has persuaded her to eat three pomegranate seeds. Still, She is reunited with Her mother in the Spring, but must return to Hades in the Fall.

Persephoné was the goddess to whom one prayed for the release of a critically ill loved one. She was the one who would greet you at the end of your life’s journey, yet she was respected rather than feared.

Her Necromanteum (“oracle of the dead”), was where pilgrims went to seek answers from beyond the veil of life. Discovered in 1958 by Prof. Sotiris Dakaris, this oracle dates from the 14th century BCE. It was considered to be the actual entrance to the Underworld.

Persephoné’s legend forms the basis of the rites of the Eleusinian Mysteries. This myth is a symbol of the budding and dying of nature. In the Eleusinian mysteries, this happening was celebrated in honor of Demeter and Persephone, known in this cult as Kore.

The Romans called her Proserpine or Prosperina, daughter of Ceres and Jupiter.

Her names means "she who destroys the light."
