Persephone Greek Maiden Goddess Descending into the underworld and Hades at the Fall Equinox

Introducing our Fall version of Persephone symbolizing her return to Hades as the wheel of the year turns from summer to autumn once again.  We have two Persephone designs which are inspired by the wheel of the year. This version represents her descent into the underworld at the Autumn equinox coloured by the flames of Hades.  Our Rising Version (add link) depicts her ascent and return to the earth for the Spring Equinox coloured in the vibrant hues of spring. 

​​In Greek mythology the changing of seasons is told through the story of Persephone and Demeter where Persephone (Goddess of Spring) is abducted by Hades and taken to the underworld to become the Queen. Meanwhile her Mother Demeter (Goddess of Agriculture) searches for her in anguish and her sorrow brings on endless winter.  As the people are starving Zeus  intervenes and negotiates with Hades so that Persephone is allowed to leave the underworld for 6 months of the year.  So every spring when she returns it brings Demeter great joy and the earth come back to life until her descent in autumn. 

At the equinox we give thanks for the harvest and bid goodbye to summer as the wheel of the year turns and Persephone returns to Hades. 

Product Details:
- This version of Persephone Descending stands 13.5 cm/5.3" high, 11 cm/4.3" wide, 6.75 cm/2.7" deep and weighs 73 gr/2.6 oz.
- She is hand-finished in a proprietary process using red and copper tones with fire highlights and bronzing materials to give her a unique and fire aged patina. Because they are hand finished, each one will vary slightly in terms of final shade and sheen.

All of our products are designed and individually 3D printed here in our home studio using a bio-safe, non-toxic, vegetable, wood fibre or sugar-cane based PLA. We then hand-finish each piece, usually smoothing and sanding them using a natural wood fibre material and then acrylic paints or glazes. The cured finishes are non-toxic but the metallic finishes do have the actual metals in them. This is a clean and local process and our materials are selected from those made in Canada or the USA. We are 100% NOT “Made in China” and take some pride in that. Through careful research and testing, we have found a great way to get around the toxic resin and moulding processes used in most of the statues on the market.
