But I guess you want to know more about Persephone herself. These links may help you:

The Queen of the Earth is a blend of both Demeter and her
daughter Persephone as well as Eresh Kigal. Demeter was
the Greek Goddess of Grain and of the Bounty of the Earth.
She was one of the Mother Goddesses. Persephone was the
maiden daughter of Demeter who was taken by Hades, the
brother of Zeus and King of the Underworld, down into his
kingdom where she became his "Queen." Eresh Kigal was of
Sumerian origin. She was the Goddess of the Underworld
but was originally a "grain" goddess. The Queen of the Earth
as she appears in this story is as both a Life giving and Life
receiving deity

And what about the icon?
