Enter a moonlit realm of magic and dreams. This stunning fine art print was first lovingly drawn by Northern California artist and illustrator, Caitlin McCarthy, who earned her Fine Art degree from Domican University. Traced with love and care, she outlines in dynamic striations the vision of mystics and visionaries from across worlds and time. Here, she meditates upon the silver light of the moon, exploring three Greco-Roman moon goddesses.

Artemis -- The twin sister of Apollo and daughter of Zeus, Artemis -- or Diana, as she was known to the Romans -- was the Greek goddess of the hunt, the wilderness, wild animals, the Moon, and chastity. Hers was the original girl gang, a legion of women who lived in the woods, following the goddess and enjoying her divine companionship in the realm of nature.
Luna -- The Roman counterpart of Selene, Luna was the divine embodiment of the moon itself, whose silver face lit up the world at night. Represented as a Roman triple goddess with Proserpina (Persephone) and Hecate (Hekate), her dominion was the night sky where she was hailed as "Queen of the Stars," and was called by Macrobius as secret patroness of Rome and a goddess of peace.
Selene -- The Greek counterpart of Luna, Selene was also the divine personification of the moon and sister of the sun and dawn. Each night, Selene takes to the skies in her lunar chariot, riding through the heavens to light up the skies. Selene was also known for her great passion for the mortal, Endymion, who entered into an enchanted eternal sleep that he might dwell forever with his lover in his dreams.
