Etruscan Terracotta Head of Persephone. An ancient Etruscan terracotta votive head of a Persephone or Demeter wearing a high veiled polos headdress.

She is depicted with a serene expression, her hair drawn back revealing two large spherical earrings. Persephone (Proserpina, Kore) was the Queen of the Underworld.

The goddess is invariably portrayed robed, often wearing a tall polos, carrying a sheaf of grain and smiling demurely with the Archaic smile. Her story has great emotional power: an innocent maiden abducted and taken to the underworld by Hades, a mother's grief at the abduction, and the return of her daughter for half of the year when as Demeter, she is the harbinger of Spring. Formerly in the collection of A. GUARANTEED AUTHENTIC AND AS DESCRIBED.
