I chose to illustrate The Curse of Demeter and when she brought on winter. She was the Goddess of Agricuture, and when her daughter Persephone was abducted by Hades, she made the earth infertile by bringing on winter. She was then known as The Goddess of the Underworld. According to Greek Mythology, she is bound back to the underworld 4 months of every year because she ate a pomegranate given to her by her abductor, and the other 8 months she spends with her mother.
