Goddess Artemis

Artemis, watch your back!!!

As soon as Artemis was born, she helped her mother give birth to her twin brother, thereby becoming the protector of childbirth and labour

Artemis was the daughter of Zeus and Leto, twin sister of Apollo. She was born on the island of Ortygia (Delos), where Leto had found shelter after being hunted by the lawful wife of Zeus, Hera

Artemis was the goddess of chastity, virginity, the hunt, the moon, and the natural environment

MYTHWhen Artemis's favorite follower, the nymph Callisto, bore Zeusa child, Artemis was so enraged by callisto's lost virginity that she changed her into a bear and drove her away with arrows.

Artemis would always carry around her bow and arrow becuase she was goddess of the hunt

Bow and arrow represents what Artemis fought/hunted with

The wolf is a symbol of Artemis because she was always on the hunt for something.

Artemis would sometimes take the form of a bear
