VALE OF NYSA

 

$2.00

VALE OF NYSA (highlighter/multipurpose powder), a pale buff peach highlighter shifting to rose. In the myth, the valley of Nysa is the location where Proserpina was gathering windflowers, when she was taken by Pluto.

"Proserpina was the Roman goddess of the Underworld. The mythology relating to the abduction of the daughter of the goddess Ceres was taken from Greek legend. It is this story that Proserpina is most famous. Proserpina was abducted by Pluto whilst she was picking flowers. In revenge for this act Ceres cast a curse on earth causing a great famine. Ceres refused to lift the curse until she saw her daughter again. Jupiter, the king of the gods and the brother of Ceres, intervened and sent Mercury to the Underworld to ask Pluto to return Proserpina. However, Proserpina had eaten part of a pomegranate whilst she was with Pluto. The pomegranate was known as the "fruit of the dead", and anyone who ate the food of the dead had to stay in the underworld. A compromise was reached and Proserpina could only be given back to her mother for part of each year. For two-thirds of the year she was allowed to live with her mother and the remainder of the time she was obliged to stay with Pluto as queen of the Underworld. The ancients believed that when Proserpina made her yearly visits to the mortal world she brought spring with her and when the time came that she must return to Pluto the bleak winter followed. Refer to the mythical stories of Proserpine and Ceres and Proserpine." SOURCE
