Description

The cast depicts Artemis, in the act of walking rapidly to the right, advancing the left foot and barely placing the tip of the right; the right arm is extended along the side and the left arm is bent at the elbow and moved away from the body. The goddess wears a chiton, a cloak and wears sandals on her feet; the face is regular, characterized by slightly pronounced cheekbones and chin. In his right hand he presumably carried a bow and on his shoulders hangs the marble quiver. The hairstyle is made up of curled locks, which frame the face, surmounted by a diadem of rosettes, while on the back and shoulders there are long and thin braids. The original work, from which the cast derives, is kept in the Archaeological Museum of Naples and comes from Pompeii. The statuette is dated to the Augustan age, but is deliberately rendered according to conventions typical of archaic art, attributed to an Athenian workshop.
