artemis

Artemis, Zeus’ daughter, divine huntress, held the status and privilege of an Olympian, aloof and free-spirited. Her symbols are the silver bow and arrow.  More about Artemis click here

Artemis was commissioned by a company in Columbus, OH.  The company described themselves as creative, passionate, independent, challenging the normal boundary standards – the qualities of Artemis.

In my original interpretation of Artemis a draped female figure was used, with a muscular, graceful body, bow poised for a clear shot, face and aim slightly upward-skyward but clearly focused on the target. Her back is arched back more for higher focus, but she is flat-footed, well grounded, ready to fire with the silver tip arrow.

 

Many years after the commission was completed I decided to create a 12.5 inch high version of Artemis, but elongated the body slightly to make it more graceful.  As you can see I used two patinas to accent the skin, visible through the clothing.
I have not a determined a price for this sculpture yet, but if interested, please contact me.
