Mugwort (Latin name Artemisia vulgaris) is a pretty silvery herb that has naturalized in North America. This image has been stuck in my head for a while, an image of an "American" Artemis in a Potnia Theron pose. Click through for more symbolism and an apology to Polytheistic Reconstructionism.

Mistress of the Wild Animals (Potnia theron) or Queen of the Wild Bees, appears under many names. Her Minoan name was Britomartis or Sweet Virgin and she was related to Diktynna. The name Potnia is known from the Linear script B tablets and was being used for the main Mycenaean female deity. For the iconographical type goddess surrounded by the animals, who was applied into Archaic Greek art, was used usually the name Potnia theron, but sometimes Artemis too.

Here is another image of the Great Goddess in an aspect of her power known as Potnia Theron or the Mistress of the Beasts and the House of Life. Grape vines grown from her head and the moon phases show the association of the Goddess in many ancient cultures with the moon. This piece is a black and white Intaglio Print (Etching) from my "Printmaker" time period.
