Goddess Symbols
and the Sacred Objects
of Persephone

Goddess symbols that were personalized for each goddess were incorporated into the worship of the ancient goddesses were often worn as jewelry. They were also used in the household decor as talismans to seek the goddesses special gifts, blessings, or protection.  A large number of goddess symbols have survived in statuary and other works of art.

Many of the goddess symbols come from the myths featuring a specific goddess and were "characters" in her story. Other goddess symbols  were derived from the rituals used  in the ancient rites of worship of these pagan goddesses.

Persephone (also known in her youth as Kore and the Roman goddess Prosperina) is often represented by symbols associated with the coming of spring. It is not surprizing that many of our icons representing the mysteries of rebirth are derived from the ancient goddess symbols of Persephone.
