For day 5 of whatever-tober I did another prompt from lanylevendula’s autumnal themed list - Harvest!
Natch I soon decided to draw Demeter - the ancient greek goddess of the Harvest.
Like her siblings, Demeter was EATEN by her father Cronos as a baby, then emerged from him later as a fully-formed adult goddess. Of course she did.
She was the oldest of the Olympians and of them all, generally started the least drama, but occasionally put up a stink when she felt it necessary. This included cursing a mortal prince to be perpetually hungry, until he ate himself, To Death.
When her daughter Kore (goddess of springtime, fathered by Demeter’s brother Zeus) was abducted down to the Underworld by her other brother Hades, Demeter was like oi Zeus tell Hades to bring our daughter back. Zeus basically was like, soz sis but I only own everything ABOVE the world, not UNDER the world, sooo idk lol.
SO Demeter said Fine Then, until I get Kore back nobody gets to eat, and she plunged the world into a bitter winter where no crops would grow and people starved en masse. Finally the Mama God, Rhea, stepped in and was like Hey Kids Stop Killing Everyone and she organised a truce. Since Kore ate six pomegranate seeds while she was in the Underworld, she had to stay with Hades for 6 months of the year. For the other 6 months, she could return to Demeter on the surface, making Demeter happy = making the sun shine and the weather warm AKA summer.
Also known as the Lady of the Golden Blade, she used a golden sickle and was accompanied by winged serpents (called dracones) that drew her chariot. Another one of her symbols was the poppy, thanks to her mortal lover Mecon who was turned into a poppy upon his death.
