An enchanting life-size statue depicting ‘BRITOMARTIS’ the Ancient Greek Goddess of hunting-fishing, and fowling-the catch of the nets. c.1900

Created from composite stone, the surface bearing remnants of original polychrome.  In statuesque athletic poise, Britomartis raises her catch triumphantly to the skies from her distinctive textured fishing net draped over her arm.

Britomartis was a huntress of the island of Crete. Legend has it that when the lustful King Minos attempted to seduce her, she fled, raced the length of the island and leapt into the sea. There she was caught in the nets of fishermen and carried to the safety of the island of Aegina. Britomartis' name means "Sweet Maiden" from the ancient Greek words ‘britos’ and ‘martis’. She was also known as Diktynna (Dictynna) "Lady of the Nets".

This statue would make a wonderful centrepiece to a water feature, a shell grotto or pool, but stands equally dramatically as a statement piece as a focal point in your garden.

Small plinth not included, please enquire separately.
