Demeter

Premier December 17th, 2021.
Currently on tour.

Demeter balances nature. Between the wild forests and the cultivated land, between the seasons where the land is barren and those where nature is reborn. Demeter controls this balance for the good of all. One day King Erysichthon builds a large table where he can invite all members of the community. To do this, he cuts an oak protected by Demeter. And doing so he unleashes the wrath of the goddess. Demeter punishes Erysichthon with endless hunger, the more he eats, the hungrier he is. Thus, desperate, Erysichthon is forced to devour endlessly, never satiating himself, bringing ruin to himself and the whole community.
We know that natural resources are finite, but what justifies exploiting them and what does not? To what extent? Is it legitimate to clear land for planting lettuce? And to cut down a redwood to build a bridge? And gaining ground in the jungle to plant the soybeans that feed the cattle? What is the limit if any? What is the balance?
The third volume of Olympus Kids stars Demeter, Erysichthon, the oak forests, the Rapa Nui deforestation, the low-cost clothing stores, the cell phones, and the extermination of animals to make the burgers we find in the supermarket.
