Head of Demeter or Kore Greek, made in Sicily, 350-300 BC Terracotta Inventory # 76.AD.34 The worship of Demeter (goddess of agriculture) and her daughter, Kore, was popular in Sicily. The island was famous in antiquity for its fertile fields, which supplied grain to the rest of the Greek world. This head, broken from a bust or a full-length statue, would have been left as an offering in one of Demeter's many sanctuaries and temples.
