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 is bent at the elbow and moved away from the body. The goddess wears a chiton, a cloak and wears sandals at her feet; her face is regular, characterized by slightly pronounced cheekbones and chin. In her right hand he presumably carried a bow and on her shoulders hangs the marble quiver. Her hairdo is made up of curled locks, which frame her face, surmounted by a diadem of rosettes, while long and thin braids hang down her back and shoulders. 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.
