Persephone belonged to her mother Demeter before she was ravished by Hades, her husband-to-be. Then ensued a tug-of-war to claim ownership of the girl, mediated by her father, Zeus. In the same, confused forest clearing, Persephone is the image of objectified girlhood, simultaneously disrobed from soil by her husband and tucked back into the earth by her mother.
