The myth of Proserpina represents the changing of the seasons. Pomegranates represent fidelity and are an important part of the myth. Proserpina eats 6 pomegranate seeds in the underworld, and this condemns her to stay there. She is finally saved and must spend only 6 months in the underworld and 6 months on earth with her mother.
