Artemis Moon

20 x 25 cm

Artemis/Diana is my namesake goddess. As the goddess of the moon, she also watches over maidens as well as her friend, Orion.

"Beyond Orion's Belt" is a companion piece to this in the "Phenomenal Reality" series.

Artemis and Orion became hunting buddies, but she caused him to be turned into a constellation when her twin brother, Apollo, became jealous of the time they spent together. He arranged to have him stung by a scorpionbut Artemis intervened and both Orion and the scorpion became constellations. However they are in opposite parts of the night sky and never come in contact.

I like that she is independent of yet somewhat watchful of her friend.
