Demeter is the daughter of Kronos and Rhea and therefore sister of Zeus and one of the Olympic gods. She is considered the mother goddess who watched over the fertility of the earth, the grain, the seeds and was responsible for the course of the seasons. When her beloved daughter Persephone was abducted by Hades and taken to the Underworld, Demeter mourned so much that all flowers, plants and animals on earth stop growing and multiplying. At the urging of the other gods, Hades finally released Persephone and the earth became fertile again.
The set contains a 7cm tall Demeter with her attributes: the golden sickle, a bundle of straw, as well as apples, melons, and a little lamb.
