One of the most widely venerated of Ancient Greek deities, Homer refers to Her as: “Artemis of the wild-land, Mistress of Animals”. Daughter of Zeus and Leto, she was the Hellenic goddess of the hunt, wild animals, wilderness, virginity and young girls. She is often depicted as a huntress carrying a bow and arrow. Deer and cypress are sacred to her. In later Hellenistic times, she even assumed the ancient role of Eileithyia in aiding childbirth. Other theological references include Diana: goddess of the Hunt and Moon.
In my one inch, two sided Artemis Amulet I have included a bow and arrow and the theological reference to Selene: (a Greek moon goddess) with a crescent moon above her head. there is a hidden bail for hanging the amulet on a chain or cord within the moon.
This would be an excellent gift for young girls entering womanhood, studying or already achieving midwifery or anyone who honors Women and loves their wild side.
