Historical Context:
"The Goddess Diana was a great hunter who lived alone. She believed she was above all her prey: the deer, the childish bunnies, and the noble eagles. Myth, history, and knowledge usually provide the slings and arrows of the powerful. Interestingly, the aggressor is eventually a victim, revealing that predators live alone." - Tim Fisher
