The Capture of Persephone

Inspired by the story in Classical Greek Mythology of the changes of the seasons. Persephone was a beautiful maiden who while gathering flowers one day was captured by Hades and taken into his underworld cavern. She had to stay in the underworld for several months at a time but was able to return to Earth for part of each year. This is the story the Greeks told to explain the changing of the seasons.
