This weekend — Artemis

I am a member of the organization Hellenion. One of the things that we do as an organization is honoring one (or more) of the Olympians each month in addition to the more “traditional” festivals of the Athenian calendar.

This is something that I find important because Artemis is the protector of young creatures — including human children. This gentler side seems to be what is reflected in this picture — and is what I will be focusing on this weekend during the Libation to Artemis as a mother of a young child……
