If you have not already done so, check the inside back cover of our 2015-16 Roman Calendar for a reproducible worksheet that asks students to engage with the mythology-oriented artwork included in the calendar.
For those completing the worksheet, here is November’s image, question, and answer.
Question: Can you identify this sculpture as Diana based on the detail image of her head? What other elements do you think the full sculpture contains that identify the goddess as Diana?
Answer: The crescent moon crown identifies the goddess as Diana. The full statue features a quiver with arrows, a stag, and a skirt shortened to knee-length to make hunting easier, all of which further identify the sculpture as Diana.
