Long Description:
Dans la mythologie romaine, Cérès, en latin Ceres, est la déesse de l'agriculture, des moissons et de la fertilité. Elle avait pour attributs la faucille et le gerbe de blé. Elle ne possède pas de légende qui lui soit propre et elle reprend les mythes de Déméter dont le plus célèbre est la recherche de sa fille, Proserpine, enlevée par Pluton.

Translated from the above noted text:

In Roman mythology, Ceres, in Latin Ceres, is the goddess of agriculture, harvest and fertility. Her attributes were the sickle and the sheaf of wheat. She has no legend of her own and she takes up the myths of Demeter, the most famous of which is the search for her daughter, Proserpine, kidnapped by Pluto.

The mask of Ceres is located on the facade of Quebec's City Hall.

Other masks of the wall are of Athena, God of the Sea and a masculine divinity.
