Watch the story of Demeter and Persephone. You can read along here.

Who do you think the hero of the story is? Who is the villian?

Ancient Greek people loved to tell the stories of the Gods from memory.

Can you try and tell someone else the story of Demeter and Persephone now you have heard it? Or maybe you could tell someone a myth that you've made up!

These sculptures are kept in the Archaeological Museum of Eleusis, in Greece, where our statue originally came from.

Does one look familiar?

The middle statue is believed to be a sister statue to the Fitzwilliam Museum caryatid.

Can you imagine how splendid they would have looked side by side in the original temple?
