Diana was the Roman name for the Grecian goddess Artemis. She is often represented as a huntress with bow and quiver on her shoulder and dog or deer at her side. The Greeks worshiped Artemis as the goddess of chastity and the guardian of youths and maidens. She also came to be looked upon as the moon-goddess, just as her twin brother Apollo was viewed as the sun-god. Probably the finest representation of her handsome features was in this statue which was found in the villa of the Emperor Hadrian at Tivoli near Rome. it is now in the museum of the Louvre.

Marble dust
is combined with cement or synthetic resins to make reconstituted or cultured marble. The appearance of marble can be simulated with faux marbling, a painting technique that imitates the stone's colour patterns.
