This exquisite bronze sculpture depicts the Hellenic deity Artemis, goddess of the hunt, wild animals, wilderness, childbirth, virginity, and young girls. Known for her association with the deer and the cypress tree, Artemis is shown here resting on the earth with a sacred deer by her side, her arm lovingly draped around its neck as she holds a bow in her other hand.

As the goddess of the hunt, Artemis was particularly fond of deer, which were the only animals considered sacred to her. She was said to have fallen in love with these creatures upon seeing a deer larger than a bull with shining horns, and she caught five golden-horned deer called Elaphoi Khrysokeroi and harnessed them to her chariot.

This stunning sculpture was crafted using the ancient lost-wax casting method and stained with a brown patina finish for preservation. The attention to detail is remarkable, from the intricate folds of Artemis's clothing to the lifelike expression on the deer's face. The sculpture is mounted on a black marble base and bears the signature of the artist, Milo.

This sculpture is a true masterpiece, capturing the essence of Artemis's beauty and strength. It is a wonderful addition to any collection of ancient art or mythology, and a must-have for anyone who admires the powerful and enigmatic goddess of the hunt.
