Artemis reloaded by amethystpurple1805 Artemis reloaded by amethystpurple1805
Here is the promised better version. Cameras are so fantastic! And, Artemis is not actually the goddess of the moon, but because her twin brother, Apollo, is the god of the sun, she is associated with the moon. She is also the Greek(?) goddess of the hunt, but I didn't do all those things in the picture. Plus, Artemis is one of my many favorite names, so I thought I'd do a picture about one. May 2008

She's really beautiful. I really like the background. :)
You know, I think Greek mythology is bit confusing sometimes - at least about this part. They have 2 different entities associated with the moon and the sun. There is Helios (sometimes he is called the god of the sun, other times he is the sun itself) and Luna (again - sometimes goddess, sometimes the moon itself). And then we have Apollo, which isn't really the god of the Sun, but rather associated with it because of his image of circling the sun. And again by association, as you already mentioned, Artemis is sometimes called the goddess of the moon. Please correct me if I said anything wrong. And excuse the huge pointless message :P

It's not pointless. It's a bit confusing to me too, but part of the reason is that when the Romans took over Greece, they accepted the Greek gods and goddesses, but changed their story a bit. They also couldn't leave out minor deities because that god might turn their wrath upon them. Also, their mythology was passed down by word of mouth, and not actually written down until later, which makes many variations in the story.
