Why is the statue Persephone atop the white house?

Recommended Posts

Why would they put a statue of Persephone atop the white house? Persephone is known as the terrible Queen of the dead, and the Queen of the Underworld. weird......

I think you just answered your own question.

The figure of Persephone is well-known today. Her story has great emotional power: an innocent maiden, a mother's grief at the abduction, and the return of her daughter. It is also cited frequently as a paradigm of myths that explain natural processes, with the descent and return of the goddess bringing about the change of seasons.

I am missing something?

Nowhere does it say she is Queen of the dead...
