Felice Casorati "Dreaming Of Pomegranates" 1912

Persephone, daughter of Demeter and Zeus and wife to Hades ~ was abducted  in a field by Hades, who carried her down to the Underworld. Demeter swore that if she was never to return that the goddess would destroy the Earth with a long winter. Zeus, concerned, approached Hades and the two made a deal. Since Persephone ate pomegranate seeds, she would have to stay for a third of each year with Hades and return to her mother for the rest of the year. This created the seasons.
