MORE ABOUT DEMETER
Demeter, in Greek mythology, was the goddess of corn and the harvest. When her daughter Persephone was abducted by Hades, god of the underworld, Demeter's grief was so great that she refused to be goddess of the grain any longer.
Her neglect of the land meant no plants grew, and famine devastated the earth. She neither ate nor slept, she roamed land and sea and refused to give her up for lost - her dedication to the search devastating herself and the earth.
