A goddess viewed by humans

Title = “Demeter in the view of mortals”

A roman goddess as viewed by humans erotic watercolor and ink

Demeter was in myth the goddess of the harvest. She controlled the fertility of the land and was worshiped for giving of the foods that grew.
Demeter also presided also over the sanctity of marriage and the kept the cycles of life and death.
She and her daughter Persephone were the central figures of the Eleusinian Mysteries.
There are many stories involving this goddess that place her among mortals in various guises.
This particular work of art was inspired by one such event.

I created this with straight black ink followed by watercolor washes.

Prints of this can be had via Fine Art America.
