Ancient Artifacts - Roman statue
Carved marble life-size torso of the Goddess, Artemis wearing flowing garments, the moon Goddess, virgin huntress, guardian of wild animals, patroness of marriage and childbirth and daughter of Zeus and Leto, in flowing robes, the head and lower legs missing. She is the lady of the wild things and the huntsman of the Gods, the protector of the young, hunting with silver arrows. Artemis became associated with the moon and Hecate. She is a virgin Goddess and the Goddess of chastity. She also presides over childbirth, which may seem odd for a virgin, but goes back to causing Leto no pain when giving birth to her. The cypress is her tree. All wild animals are scared to her, especially the deer. Mounted on a base.
Ancient Egyptian Palettes
Carved grey teardrop shaped siltstone cosmetic palette, hole at the top for hanging. Cosmetic/ceremonial palettes, usually made from siltstone, 'greywacke', have been found as early as the Baldarian period, c. 5500-4000 BC. They were used to grind pigments such as malachite or galena, from which eye paint was made. Naqada II.
