The legend of Persephone tells the story of a young woman whose mother, Demeter, tries to keep her innocent. But Hades, the king of the Underworld, falls in love with her and is determined to have her. He entices her to stay with him by feeding her pomegranates, the food of the underworld.
Demeter is so riven with grief that she fails to look after the earth, and instead of thriving, the world plunges into eternal winter.
To save human life, the gods decide that Persephone will spend half the year on earth and half the year in Hades. When she is gone from the earth, everything fades and the melancholy fruitfulness of autumn is followed by the bleakness of winter.
But when she returns, the world blazes into colour and light. Persephone is the woman who makes the world - and heads - turn.
