Detail from the handle of a black-figure krater, the so-called 'Francois' vase. Artemis is represented as 'Potnia Theron' (Mistress of Animals), holding a panther in one hand, and a deer in the other. Circa 570 BC.
Here is another image of the Great Goddess in an aspect of her power known as Potnia Theron or the Mistress of the Beasts and the House of Life. Grape vines grown from her head and the moon phases show the association of the Goddess in many ancient cultures with the moon. This piece is a black and white Intaglio Print (Etching) from my "Printmaker" time period.
