Goddess Diana's Mighty Hounds
by Leslie Brown
About the Book
Diana, The Roman goddess, was a huntress and travelled the woods in the company of canines. She was the goddess of the woodlands, wild animals and hunting as well as a fertility goddess, who helped women to conceive and give birth. In addition she was Goddess of the moon with a changeable and unpredictable nature.
Diana, the camera , began as a carnival prize. Beneath her plastic skin is a primitive soul, which brings a primal quality to all she captures. She too is a huntress with a gravitational pull to wild animals and woodlands. Like the goddess with whom she shares her name, she too is changeable and unpredictable from one image to the next.
From a mere carnival trinket, Diana has come a long way, with a voice all her own and a vision to show us the world through different eyes. she runs with wolves but favors their cousin the dog as her mighty companion.
