Details

In Greek mythology Persephone is the daughter of Zeus and the Mother Earth goddess Demeter. Hades, god of the Underworld asks Zeus for Persephone's hand in marriage, but when he doesn't consent, Hades sprits Persephone away to the underworld. When Demeter finds out about what happened, she neglects her duties to the Earth which plummets into drought and famine. Fearful for the mortals on Earth, Zeus pleads with Hades to release Persephone. He declares that Persephone and Hades' marriage is void unless Persephone eats from Hades' garden.

Naturally, Hades tricks Persephone into eating a pomegranate, which ties her to the Underworld, making it so that each year she must return to the Underworld...which brings Demeter's sadness and marks the start of the winter. When it is time for her to return to the Earth, she helps Demeter spread life and vegetation.

This double-sided art doll is the perfect addition to a Montessori springtime literature shelf, or a great gift for the art historian or mythology buff in your life. On one side, she is the playful, innocent daughter of Demeter, and on the other, she is the magnificent Queen of the Underworld.

Specs:
-Persephone is handcrafted from organic blue and white cotton muslin and wool felt, drawn freehand on my sewing machine with high-quality polyester thread.
-She is stuffed with organic cotton fibers.
-She is painted with non-toxic permanent dye
-Each of her personas has a hand-embroidered face and and wool felt detailing.
-Springtime Persephone holds a bowl overflowing with springtime life, and as Queen of the Underworld she holds the fateful pomegranate.
-Your set arrives in a reusable muslin (also organic!) drawstring bag--which can be used for storage of your Persephone or any number of other things around your house of classroom!
-Dimensions: Approximately 8" tall.

For educational or decorative use only--not for use by unsupervised young children.

[REVISED FEEDBACK:
The original review that follows did not reflect unforeseen, adverse circumstances (for shop owner) that caused the unusual delay.]

Really a beautiful, well-crafted item, but it wasn't shipped in a timely manner. I ordered 3 mo in advance of my BFFs due date, and it wasn't shipped until a few days before she delivered (ordered March 3; shipped May 12)--so not BAD, but longer than what I'd read re: turn around date.

I know baby won't use them for a while, but they're a lovely decoration for the nursery till she can. Shop owner said they were nearly finished, but they shipped several wks (2 wks?) later, according to Etsy. This may have been a tech glitch, but makes me sad because it's truly such a beautifully made treasure.

Do order FAR in advance. But also expect a unique work of art.

TOY AND LEARNING TOOL SAFETY

As stated above, all of the items I make are crafted to the best of my abilities, but please be aware of the risks of purchasing handmade toys. They have not passed any official federal safety tests, and are not made with hypo allergenic materials. As a teacher, I understand the risks in giving any toy to children, but I do ask that you use common sense when purchasing anything from my shop. Here are some specs to help gauge what toys are appropriate for specific age levels and needs:

1) All items are crafted with natural wool and/or organic cotton. If your child has a wool allergy, I would be happy to create something for you using exclusively cotton. Material contents and care instructions are included with the item AND in the item's listing. If you have any questions about material content, let me know!

2) All of the counting and sorting Montessori works include removable magnetic parts, and present a choking hazard to very young children. All magnets are glued, and then sewn into the materials, so they will not come out easily! However, the CPSIA (Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act) requires me to include warnings on magnetic items for children. I generally recommend using these items for children 6 and up. Any younger, constant adult supervision is strongly advised.

3) All items are created in a smoke-free environment. I do have a cat and a dog. All items are carefully brushed and checked for the errant animal hair before packaging (they don't come in direct content with my materials, so any instance of this is a rarity). If you or your child is SEVERELY allergic to microscopic pet dander, it may not be the best idea to purchase toys from my shop.

4) All painted items use AP certified non-toxic paint, and are heat set, so the paint won't rub off. I can't make any guarantees about what will happen if your child puts them in their mouth, so it's best to say they are not suitable for children under 5.

Ultimately, use your own judgement when purchasing handmade toys. You know your child better than anyone!

A NOTE ON MADE TO ORDER ITEMS:

I make everything with my own two hands. Although I do use patterns for made to order items, each item is a unique creation with its own quirks and bits of personality. If you are looking for items that are 100% identical to listing photographs, I might recommend that you look at my OOAK items.

REFFERALS

If you have been referred to my shop by a friend or family member I would love to hear about it! They will receive 15% off their next purchase.
