This shirt isn't just beautiful - it's also full of hidden gems about Persephone, the goddess of spring and the queen of the Underworld!
1. Check out Persephone's wedding ring. It's in the shape of her husband Hades' scepter (also called "bident").
2. Purple is used in Persephone's jewelry to reflect Persephone's royal side as queen of the underworld.
3. The flowers in this design are narcissus flowers (daffodils). Several variations of the story of Persephone's "capture" share that Persephone was in the process of plucking the narcissus flower when Hades came to take her away and bring her to the Underworld. We like to think she still had these flowers in her hand when she went down into the Underworld (which brings us to the next point).
4. The phrase "Bring flowers to the darkness" isn't just a beautiful quote that will inspire beauty all around you. Hades loved Persephone, the goddess of spring, so much that he had gardens built for her in the Underworld. He wanted her to feel at home, so he created gardens that were were said to be more beautiful than any on earth. Persephone becoming the Queen of the Underworld literally brought flowers into Hell (and softened the heart of the God of The Underworld himself).
