This marble bust of Diana Chasseresse, or 'Diana the Huntress’ is in the Vatican, Rome. Diana, or Artemis as she was known in Greek mythology, was the daughter of Zeus and Leto and the twin sister of Apollo. She was the goddess of hunting, wild nature, virginity and childbirth. She is often shown carrying a bow and arrow and accompanied by a deer. The deer and cypress tree are her sacred symbols.
Shown here with the matching bust of Apollo:
The beautiful white marble of Carrara in Tuscany was used for the Pantheon in ancient Rome, and was a favourite of Michelangelo. The sculptures in this collection - made in the UK - are created using a process of 'dry casting', so that each sculpture contains over 90% marble. The high quality is such that there will be no discoloration - other than natural patination and ageing - should the sculptures be placed outdoors.
