Artemis Bathing


H 27 ½” x W 10 ¼” x D 6 ¾”



Artemis, bathing in a stream, discovered Actaeon spying on her.  So offended, she changed Actaeon into a stag devoured by his own hounds. The harshness of Artemis and her association with the wild, made her dangerous, “paradoxically compassionate and vengeful, nurturing and destructive, pacific and bloody.”*
