Artemis

Artemis (Ἄρτεμις, Ártemis)

Virgin goddess of the hunt, wilderness, animals, young girls, childbirth, plague, and the moon. In later times she became associated with bows and arrows. She is the daughter of Zeus and Leto, and Apollo's twin sister. In art she was often depicted as a young woman dressed in a short knee-length chiton and equipped with a hunting bow and a quiver of arrows. Her attributes include hunting spears, animal pelts, deer and other wild animals. Her sacred animals are deer, bears, and wild boars. Diana was her Roman counterpart.


The greek goddess Artemis has been a popular theme for sculptors fr thousands of years. They mostly show her just standing still with bow and arrow.
This is how she is usually depicted

My version of Artemis. Work in progress
As she was a huntress I thought I would try to depict her in a more dynamic hunting pose.
