    Demeter — Goddess of Grain. Perhaps the most human goddess, Demeter represents the powerful bond between mother and daughter. She was worshipped in Greece as early as 1500 BCE. Stolen by Hades, Persephone was mown down and torn from her mother exactly as the sheaf in grain goddess Demeter’s hand is reaped from the bosom of Mother Earth. The highest mystical’truths regarding time, suffering,and spiritual regeneration were embodied in Demeter’s mystery religion, which was widely influential on the Roman Empire. Much of this symbolism was subsumed by Christianity. —picture and text © 1996 JBL Statues (now called Sacred Source), original text created by Tom Laudeman
