Persephone, the daughter of Demeter, the goddess of grain and land, was kidnapped by Hades, the god of fame, while picking flowers with her friends in the flower garden of Nisa.
Make her eat food in underworld
When her daughter disappeared, her mother Demeter traveled all over Greece to find her. No matter how hard she tried, she couldn't find her daughter.
I will send you to home. Eat this pomegranate
Really? Yeah!! I will eat it!
Demeter, who was grieving, found out that her daughter had been kidnapped by Hades and asked Zeus to save her.
Demeter, who was grieving, found out that her daughter had been kidnapped by Hades and asked Zeus to save her. Zeus, who pretended not to know to marry his older brother Hades, sent Hermes to meditation on the condition that Persephone could be saved if she hadn't eaten anything in the meditation, otherwise she couldn't.
Hermes hinted Hades at this condition, and Hades offered Persephone pomegranate to send her home. Persephone was delighted to eat pomegranate, which resulted in Hades' wife.
However, Demeter's request to return his daughter was strong, so Zeus mediated so that she could stay in underworld for four months out of the year and stay with her mother on the ground for the rest of the year. As a result, while Persephone was in underworld, grain did not grow and the vitality of the land disappeared, and when it came up to the ground, the land regained vitality, reviving vegetation, and grain bears fruit.
