Persephone


I've recently bought this beautiful statue of Persephone from www.goddessgift.net It's so gorgeous...I adore it. I am looking to build up a collection of goddess statues for my small altar in the bedroom, you see. I love Persephone who is at once beautiful, young and innocent in the form of the Maiden of Springtime but also sad, world-weary and wise as the Goddess of the Underworld. I respond strongly to the story of Persephone and her mother Demeter too, as the ultimate tale of descent and renewal.
