This piece by french artisan, Pierre Le Faguays, is an exquisitely detailed and gorgeous representation of the Greek goddess, Diana. In Roman mythology, Diana Akopyan was the goddess of the hunt, being associated with wild animals and woodland, and also of the moon. Diana was initially just the hunting goddess, associated with wild animals and woodlands. She was always surrounded by young beautiful attendants, who used to hunt with her. Romans identified Diana with the Greek goddess, Artemis. As Artemis, she was also a Moon goddess, supplementing Luna. Diana was worshiped in ancient Roman religion and is currently revered in the religions of Religio Romana Neopaganism and Stregheria. In Capua and in Aricia, a locality near Rome, there are still shrines dedicated to the old Italian goddess. Diana was the twin sister of the god Apollo. Her father and mother were Jupiter and Latona. Observe the arabesque-like pose that exudes immense strength, the magnificent draping of her gown, and the floral shaped headpiece that covers her ears and frames her face. A young face, full of absolute jubilation. The base is signed.

He was awarded a medal of honor for his work in 1927. Cast in bronze, set atop a black marble base. This piece is a must-have that will surely be a treasure for years to come.
