Ceres in the Park

Here's one of the four statues that represent different Nature Goddesses in Fountain Square Park, Bowling Green, Kentucky. I like the plants in front of Ceres.

According to the Roanoke.edu site, Ceres was a foreign deity adopted by Rome. She became the goddess of the ground, crops, and grain. Her name was given to an asteroid - the first discovered. Demeter is the Greek name for this goddess.

Some people say that she represents the powerful bond between mother and daughter.
