|This image of Artemis is drawn from a first
century BCE Greek sculpture. One of the Virgin Goddesses, Artemis is associated with wild
places and the moon. The deer, with its loss and regrowth of antlers, is symbolically
connected to the moon and all cycles of renewal. Artemis and the deer co-inhabit the wild
places. She is a protectress of wild animals, virgin forests and the right of young women
to remain chaste.
