Greek Deity Sheet - Artemis
ALL ITEMS IN OUR STORE ARE HANDMADE AND TAKE TIME TO PRODUCE. IT CAN TAKE UP TO 2 WEEKS FOR PAGES TO SHIP.
A new way to interact with Pagan Gods. A page for your Book of Shadows dedicated to a specific deity. Each page comes with an attached parchment envelope filled with a torn and charred piece of parchment paper. Write a letter to your god or goddess and place it inside the envelope. You can also add herbs, crystals, or any other magical tool as an offering to your god or goddess. Add your hair or fingernail clippings to the envelope to merge your energy with the deity.
To be true to the ancient culture, I did a lot of research on each deity and I added the most appropriate symbols to their pages. The back of the page has the aged background, but it is blank so you can add even more facts and/or pictures of your deity.
Artemis: Maiden moon goddess of hunting, animal liberation, feminism and protection. The daughter of Zeus and Leto. Twin sister of Apollo. As soon as she grew up, she ran away to the woods with a group of feminist Nymphs and took a vow of chastity. She has a strong distaste for men. Her symbols are the bow, deer and hounds.
The picture comes from Ancient Greek pottery art, about 400 - 390 BCE.
A copy of an Ancient Greek coin dedicated to Artemis has been added to the tip of the envelope like a wax and seal. This silver coin comes from Selinus, c. 450 BCE.
A prayer for each deity has been translated into Greek. In English the prayer reads:
Artemis fairest among maidens,
you roam the wilderness.
Oh kindly one, you ease the sharp pains of childbirth,
and you are the fiercest protector of children.
Oh luminous goddess, I praise and honor you.
This double sided Parchment Paper page has been mounted onto a three hole punched backing. It is ready to be added to your Adjustable Book of Shadows. I invented them because I wanted scrapbook pages free from plastic sheet protectors. The pages are all 8 ½ by 11 inches. The 3 holes have been punched into an extra ½ inch strip on the side of the page. They look like pages of a regular book in a tightly bound scrapbook because you can’t see the bindings at all. They make a wonderful crisp sound as you turn the pages. The pages are printed onto brand new Ivory Parchment Paper but look aged. All mounted page come with frayed edges and are coffee stained. Your Book of Shadows will look like an old family heirloom.
