Daughter of Artemis
Posted on juin 06 2017
I photographed my latest antler collection a few days ago and will be adding to the shop hopefully by Sunday. As always each piece is one of a kind and hand cast by me with mixed vintage and reproduction vintage flowers and various millinery supplies, trims, crystals,ect.
This collection is Titled "Daughter of Artemis"
In the classical period of Greek mythology, Artemis was often described as the daughter of Zeus and Leto, and the twin sister of Apollo. She was the Hellenic goddess of the hunt, wild animals, wilderness, childbirth, virginity and protector of young girls, bringing and relieving disease in women; she often was depicted as a huntress carrying a bow and arrows. The deer and the cypress were sacred to her.
