Artemis by DoroxDoro Artemis by DoroxDoro
In the classical period of Greek mythology, Artemis was the daughter of Zeus and Leto, and the twin sister of Apollo. She was the Hellenic goddess of forests and hills, child birth, virginity, fertility, the hunt, and often was depicted as a huntress carrying a bow and arrows.
Artemis later became identified with Selene, a Titaness who was a Greek moon goddess

The only thing I think I dislike about this image is that Artemis is a virgin goddess and therefore is not supposed to be sexualized.

sorry to say this, but you my friend need to read more of the ancient Greek religion....yes she is a virgin,but ask Orion about her sexuality...and her twin brother Apollo for his jealousy!!!

p.s. I'm a Greek and i know all of my ancient religion

I don't care if you are Greek, I've read plenty of books of Greek religion and I have friends who are Greeks AND Hellenists... as in they follow the Greek gods. Why do you think the statues of Artemis never demonstrate her revealing too much flesh? Think about it.

not only at Artemis statue but to all female statues because it was the all idea of that time about female body..look at Athena or even Aphrodite who is the goddess of love they cover most of her body. it was the artistic idea at that period of time...and those friend of yours....they are ignorant christians who they have no idea of what is the only true Hellenic religion

The way Aphrodite is painted, however, shows much more skin.

You dare call my friends "Christians" when you know nothing of them, for one thing. And secondly, you like a zealot Christian proclaim there is a "one true Hellenic religion". Hypocrisy, much?

A very interesting depiction of her. I'm not used to seeing Artemis with such implicit sexuality, though it seems like she's almost unaware of her allure.

Beautiful!!! I love the way you've depicted her. For a chaste and virgin goddess you've actually manged to make her look part sensual and part chaste. You've done my favorite goddess justice!!!! It's a work of art, no pun intended :D

It's very well-done, but I'm surprised at how sexually you drew her (the position, mostly), considering how she is described as being (what we would call) tomboy-ish, and how she has no desire to attract the attention of men.

I am curious as to how she can be the goddess of childbirth, fertility, and virginity at the same time.

Anyway, beautiful work!
