Ceremonial relief of Eleusis. The piece is a reproduction inspired by a Greek bas-relief from the 5th century BCE. The original relief is currently exhibited in the National Archaeological Museum of Athens.

The relief we reproduce in this piece is dated between 440-430 BCE and comes from the sanctuary of Demeter in Eleusis. On the left, the goddess Demeter is depicted holding a scepter while on the right is her daughter Persephone holding a long torch. The center is occupied by Triptolemus, naked, with the mantle or himation draped over his right shoulder. The relief describes the moment when Demeter hands Triptolemus the golden sheaves while Persephone blesses them. Demeter wears a woolen Ionic chiton that falls in heavy folds. Persephone wears an Ionic chiton with a wide variety of folds. The three figures create an atmosphere of mystical exaltation with their expression and attitude.

Rituals were celebrated in the sanctuary of Eleusis that recreated the mysteries of life and death and the rebirth into a spiritual life, symbolized by the myth of Demeter and Persephone. This myth recounts the abduction of Persephone, the daughter of Demeter, the goddess of the Earth, who descends to the underworld so that the god of the dead, Hades, will return her daughter to her. While Persephone is in Hades, vegetation falls dormant, and winter arrives. When the young woman returns to her mother, all nature is reborn, and Spring arrives.
