Diana and Actaeon by Paul Manship, 1925. Bronze with gilding.
This grouping is just under life-size: Diana is 62 3/16 x 42 ¾ x inches (157.9 x 108.5 cm) and Actaeon is 48 x 52 inches (121.9 x 132.1 cm).
Actaeon was a Theban hero renowned for his hunting prowess. There are several versions of his legend – some say that in his hubris he sought to marry the goddess, others that he unintentionally glimpsed her bathing – but, having incurred her wrath, she fired an arrow which transformed him into a stag, and he was devoured by hounds.
