This is the most celebrated of the six statues of Diana in the collection of the Louvre. It is remarkable for its graceful repose, for the maidenly character of the figure, and for the admirable disposition of the drapery. Diana, chaste goddess of the hunt, fair incarnation of the moon, and then called Luna, could hardly be more graciously portrayed. The original was found at Gabii, a Roman suburb.
