Divine protectress of the wild
Great huntress of the night
Yours the strength of Bear
The guile of Hawk in flight
Teach to me your mysteries
Guide me with your light
Let it fill me with your inspiration
Your fierce and focused aspiration
To fly golden, whole and true
The purity of moonlit midnight
Heralds daybreak and life anew.

"Artemis was one of the most widely venerated of the Ancient Greek deities. Her Roman equivalent is Diana. Some scholars believe that the name and indeed the goddess herself was originally pre-Greek. Homer refers to her as Artemis Agrotera, Potnia Theron: Artemis of the wildland, Mistress of Animals'."

i don't know if you are supposed to have a favorite goddess, but Artemis is totally my favorite goddess.
i think you did her great justice because you also added wild animals and the moon on/in this artwork.(many people like her but does not even know she is also the goddess of the moon and the hunt)
great great great work!!!!!

Very nice work - Artemis is looking good (surely the god with the coolest name) and those are some great looking bears (adorable baby unicorn too).
