The Liberty style mosaic of Demeter, Sicilian goddess of grain and agriculture known as the Doll of the Capo because she adorned the front of a bakery in the Capo market has been restored. She and the bakery sign were removed from the decrepit building (the bakery had gone out of business after many generations) and restored and now hangs in the Aiutamicristo palace. The sign and the goddess will go back to the Capo after the building it was attached to is remodeled. She lifts a sheaf of wheat. Demeter also reigns from the top of the golden dome of Vermont's capitol building. I love that connection.
