Running Artemis

late 2nd Century BC - 1st Century AD

Marble

Greece or Italy

Artemis, goddess of the hunt, is identifiable here by the quiver strap across her chest. The way the dress clings to the body (often called “wet drapery”) while simultaneously billowing around the figure creates an exaggerated sense of movement that is a signature element of Hellenistic sculpture. Known for her chastity and modesty, Artemis cannot escape the dictates of the style and its body-conscious modelling.
