Most of the myths started in Italy but were quickly influenced by Greece.It is difficult to find information about diana the hunter as she was also known as 'diana nemorensis' and 'artemis'. Below, a short myth about \"Diane the Hunter\".
Diana was an ancient Italian goddess of the woods. In capoue and aricia, places near Rome, there are still shrines dedicated to the old Italian goddess. His sanctuary in aricia was on the shores of Lake Nemi. For this reason, it was called diana nemorensis, diana of the woods. The rites dedicated to him were particularly brutal.
Human sacrifices were offered to the native goddess. Diana's priest was an escaped slave. Each new priest had to kill his predecessors in order to get his office.
At Capoue, people believed that the preservation of the city depended on the fate of a long-lived deer dedicated to the goddess. Because of the influence of the Greek colonies in southern Italy around the pre-pacific life, Diane identified with the Greek goddess of woodlands acquiring the attributes of the latter.
For the Greeks, artemis was also the personification of the moon and its twin brother Apollo was associated with the sun. His father and mother were jupiter and latona. Diana believed that her virgin body was very sacred and not for a man's eyes. One day, the hunter, acteon, was walking around and came across diana bathing. Diana became so angry; she turned acteon into a deer.
Now he was unable to speak, and therefore no one would ever hear of the naked body of diana. Acteon was then killed by his own hunting dogs. This sculpture is signed by e. Most orders are shipped within 24 to 48 hours of purchase. Please contact us before making any purchases in these areas.
