sculpture: Phoebe


          PHOEBE - 2013                                    
Phoebe was made from a weathered chunk of  Westonwood stone, which is a coarse-grained type of limestone.  Phoebe weighs 28.7 lbs and is about 11 inches high.

The name Phoebe was the Roman form of the Greek name Phoibe, which meant 'bright and pure' from the Greek Phoibos. 

In Greek mythology, Phoibe was a Titan associated with the moon.  She was the titan of 'bright intellect' and
the third deity to hold the Oracle of Delphi.

The name Phoibe was also
given to her granddaughter Artemis,
goddess of chastity, the moon, and the natural environment. Artemis asked her father to grant her eternal chastity and virginity. She rejected marriage and love and was devoted to hunting and nature.
