Persephone & Hades T-shirt - Greek Mythology Collection

6 items left

A Greek Mythology themed t-shirt, inspired by the story of Persephone, the goddess of spring, and Hades, god of the underworld.

Persephone is the daughter of Zeus and Demeter, goddess of the earth. Hades abducts Persephone one day as she is gathering flowers by a stream. Demeter goes in search of her daughter but is unable to find her. Demeter’s grief causes the crops to fail, and famine comes upon the land. Zeus intervenes and commands Hades to return Persephone. Reluctant to release her, Hades forces Persephone to eat a pomegranate seed, the food of the dead. As a result, she can spend only six months out of the year with her mother; the other six months she is destined to spend in the realm of Hades. To the Greeks, the return of Persephone from the underworld symbolised the return of life in the spring.

Our Persephone & Hades design has been screen printed in the South West of England, onto a pomegranate-coloured t-shirt, in a bold white print. 

Made from 100% cotton, this dark red t-shirt is unisex for a relaxed fit.

Fantastic t-shirt

This is a beautiful t-shirt, in a gorgeous deep red with a soft material. I ordered an S as it fits large and it fits me very nicely. It's the second one I buy at Literary Emporium and I am planning on getting more, I definitely recommend it.

Great quality!

Absolutely loving my new Persephone and Hades t-shirt. I've been an admirer of the Literary Emporium's t-shirts and sweatshirts for a while, but as I'm plus size, have always worried about the sizing. I bought the 2xl and it fit perfectly for a UK size 22/24.
