Artemis as the 'Lady of Ephesus'

Artemis as the 'Lady of Ephesus'. A marble statue showing Artemis as the mother goddess of fertility, adorned with lions, panthers and deer. Originally thought to be breasts or bull's testes, the spherical protuberances are regarded as representations of tear-shaped amber beads that decorated her original wooden cult figure. At Ephesus, and across Asia Minor, Artemis was associated with the pre-Greek goddess Cybele, a primordial mother-fertility deity. In Greek mythology, Artemis was the virgin goddess of the hunt, of wild forests and of fertility. She was the daughter of Zeus and Leto. During Roman times, she was identified with Diana, the Roman goddess of hunting. Country of Origin: Turkey. Culture: Ancient Greek. Date/Period: 2nd C AD. Place of Origin: Ephesus, Asia Minor.
