The Goddess Artemis / Diana

Artemis (as called by the ancient Greeks- the Romans called this Goddess by the name Diana) has been a recent fascination of mine since I relocated from the city out to the countryside.

[From Deviantart: Artemis ~ Greek Mythology]

Artemis is a deity of the woods- she represents the dual nature of both the creatures of the forest and those that hunt them. She is a symbol of the cycle of life and death- the beauty and cruelty of the world. Like a wild animal, she can be kind and gracious to those under Her protection or devastingly destructive to those that cross Her path :crossed_swords:

Artemis/Diana is a defender of young women and also a protector of witches:

In my process of learning about Artemis, I found a lovely video by one of my favorite artists Lindsey Stirling and couldn’t resist sharing it here.

Whether you have an interest in Artemis/Diana, are a fan of epic violin music, or just love a good song- I hope you enjoy this as much as I did! :grin:

By Artemis’ grace, may every shot you take strike true
For every fall you take, may you rise again anew
As hunter or prey, caught in the cycle of life-
By Her protection, may you live without strife

Blessed be! :crossed_swords: :heart:

You’re very welcome @anneshakargupta and @Amethyst - glad you enjoyed the video! :notes: :blush:

That’s amazing that you can play the violin, Christina! :heart_eyes: It was my instrument of choice in elementary school (after the recorder, everyone had to choose an intrustement to learn) but it was tough and I never mastered it :sweat_smile: I had much more luck with piano! :musical_keyboard: Good for you for learning the violin- it’s a really beautiful insutrement to play! :violin: :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:

In my early days, I used to whisper her name; Diana in the middle of the night, walking while looking the full moon.
Here’s a piece I bought a couple of months ago from a good friend and artist that he painted. Still looking for that special frame for it.

Oh wow, that’s pretty! I hope you can find a good frame for it without paying an arm and a leg.

Wow @pedros10! I agree with Amethyst- what a stunning image of Diana :heart_eyes: Your friend is very talented indeed! I’m sure you’ll find a special frame to honor the piece, or maybe you’d consider making your own customized frame (using a cardboard base and any pretty paper you have on hand)! :framed_picture: :sparkles:

Thanks for sharing :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:
