Greek mythology features numerous stories about the relationships between mothers and their children. Perhaps the best known (and most positive) is that of Demeter and her daughter Persephone, who enjoy a warm and happy relationship together before Hades, god of the underworld, abducts Persephone to be his wife.
While mythology explores the mother-child bond in all of its varied complexity, Mother’s Day is an opportunity to celebrate the role that mothers play in our lives.
This set of free Mother’s Day images reimagines Demeter and Persephone’s bond in modern style, with a variety of mother-daughter and mother-son relationships depicted as decorative designs.
