Artemis Picture

My Digipaint of Artemis.

In Greek Mythology she was the daughter of Zeus and Leto and twin sister to the god Apollo. She was the goddess of the hunt, wild animals, wilderness, childbirth, virginity and protector of young girls, bringing and relieving disease in women. Both Artemis and her twin Apollo had a silver bow, and Artemis served as both a hunter and protector of animals in the forest.

She guarded her purity viciously and punished any man who attempted to dishonor her in any form. One being Actaeon who saw her and her nymphs bathing, for staring at their naked bodies Artemis turned him into a stag and set his own hounds on him.

Callisto was a nymph subject of Artemis, whom was turned into a bear by Artemis for breaking her vow of chastity.
