This storyboard does not have a description.
One day, as Demeter and her daughter Persephone were walking through nature, Persephone noticed a very beautiful flower in the distance. When she picked it from the ground, the ground started to rumble, and out of the ground came Hades, god of the underworld, on a massive chariot. He took her off of her feet and kidnapped her to the underworld.
When Demeter had received the news that Persephone had been kidnapped. She became very sad. Since she was the god of nature, when she became sad, the flowers started to die, the skies turned gray, and everything seemed to become sad.
When Zeus, the most powerful god of all, noticed the sadness down on Earth, he asked his personal messenger Hermes what was going on. He informed Zeus about the kidnapping of Persephone and why Demeter was sad. He then told Hermes to go to the underworld and save Persephone.
When Hermes arrived in the underworld, he told Hades that Zeus wanted Persephone back to her mother. Hades agreed to let her go, but not before making her eat a fruit that would make her have to come back to the Underworld every few months. Persephone ate the fruit not knowing what would happen. She was later told about the consequences of eating the fruit.
When Persephone returned to her mother, the flowers blossomed, the plants grew, and the sun shined. But Persephone shared the bad news that she would have to return to the Underworld.
Whenever Persephone returned to the Underworld and Demeter became sad, the skies turned gray, the trees started to die, and the air turned cold. But when she returned to her mother, Spring sprung! That is the myth of the four seasons.
