Close up of what she is holdingPlease help me identify this Greek goddess statue in the attached image. Who is this? She is wearing a hat of some kind and is holding flowers or some other plants.

Greek goddess

  • It would be helpful to know, which flowers/plants she is holding. Can you describe them in more detail?

Reminds me of a Kore (sculpture) and the plants look like they might be poppy bulbs, which are associated with the Kore (aka Persephone), and her mother Demeter.

  • Her hat, too, could be a polos, which Demeter and Persephone both wore. (See this link, which illustrates the various poloi with Barbie dolls.)

Demeter cause of all the plants she was the Goddess of the harvest

  • Isn't Demeter rather depicted with grain than with flowers?
