Greek gods and goddesses were quite numerous, as there was a personification for every important aspect in their existence. This Artemis – Goddess of Hunting and Wilderness depicts one such goddess who was well-known for her purity and her fiery demeanor. Artemis was the twin sister of Apollo, and both were the children of Zeus and a titan born woman, Leto. Among her various roles, Artemis was known as a goddess of hunting, of the wilderness, of wild animals, and of childbirth. In this statue, she is represented as a young woman dressed as a hunter, wearing a fine leather breastplate and a short skirt, as well as rugged boots and a short cape. A headband keeps her wild hair from her face as she pulls back the bow and takes aim, although, given that a doe stands beside her, it is quite possible that she hunts a poor mortal who has incurred her wrath. She stands atop a rocky base that features a placard that bears her name. This statue is crafted entirely in cold cast bronze, which is a variation of cold cast resin that is mixed with powdered bronze to give the statue greater weight as well as a metallic look and feel. It is also hand painted, which introduces color into the metallic hue while also enhancing its finish and sheen. This Greek statue stands approximately 12.25 inches tall. Hunters will find that Artemis is just the goddess to appease when you seek a bountiful hunt, and enthusiasts will find that this Artemis – the Goddess of Hunting and the Wilderness is a wonderful depiction of this young yet powerful Greek Goddess.
