"The goddess Artemis was a favorite subject of this famous Late Classical sculptor. She is shown accepting a garment dedicated to her by young women. In 1792 it was found in the ruins of Gabii, and was later purchased by Napoleon. In modern times her head was removed because scholars concluded that it was not authenitcally Praxitelian." - wall label Cast Exhibition
