Description

This statue of Artemis (also known as Diana) is displayed in the Ephesus Museum. Artemis was the Greek goddess of the hunt and of fertility. Although her appearance has been described as “multi-breasted”, it is more likely that the globes around her chest were the testes of the sacrificial bulls, which were hung on the statue as a symbol of fertility.
