In Greek mythology Artemis is the daughter of Zeus and Leto and the twin sister of Apollo. In Roman mythology, she was known as Diana. She was the virgin moon goddess of the hunt, wild animals, healing, wilderness, chastity, and, ironically, childbirth (she was worshipped as a fertility / childbirth goddess mostly in cities), since she assisted her mother in the delivery of her twin. Early in her development, she was identified with Hecate, the primal, pre-Olympian feral goddess. She later became more identified with and eventually supplanted Selene as the moon goddess to complement her twin’s identification with and upplantation of Helios as the sun god.
Made of cast stone. Cast stone is a type of gypsum cement whose properties are much different from plaster of paris which is what most sculpture shops use. Unlike plaster, which is soft, light and weak, cast stone is hard, heavy and strong. Cast stone feels like, and is heavy like a real stone would be, which can be experienced as soon you try to lift it.
