"This piece was part of a series featuring various Greek myths and mythical creatures that was developed entirely by the artist as a way to create narrative illustrations suitable for a children books featuring Greek mythology. The Ceryneian Hind was a cherished friend of the chaste goddess Artemis and was said to have golden antlers and the ability to outrun a speeding arrow. The almond tree is also associated with Artemis." -BreeAnn Veenstra
