an ancient greek statue with fruit and vegetables on it's body, in front of a white wall
Artemis of Ephesus
Artemis statue from the Amphitheater of Lepcis Magna, now in the Archaeological Museum of Tripoli. Anatolian-Greek mythological image from an ancient mother nature. Contrasting it with the current vision on nature, it may invite thoughts like Hegel's description of "the True” as “the Bacchanalian revel in which no member is not drunk". Not to say that we are sober today. Are we missing something like a caring Artemis in our competitive vision on nature?
