The museum of Ephesus with the statue of Artemis

In Selçuk, you find the museum of Ephesus where they restore and expose the pieces of art archaeologists find back in the ancient town. The statue of Artemis was very impressive. This Goddess was worshiped by the Greeks and Romans for the fertility. She is seen as the mother of the Gods and she holds power over nature and its animals. That’s why the statue also contains images of animals in the jewellery and clothing. The original statue stood in the temple of Artemis which was destroyed. In the Roman Empire you find several replicas of this statue, one here in Selçuk but also in the Vatican Museum in Rome.

In Selçuk, vind je het museum van Ephesus waar kunstwerken gevonden door archeologen in de historische stad, worden hersteld en tentoongesteld. Het beeld van Artemis was zeer indrukwekkend. De Godin werd geëerd voor haar vruchtbaarheid. Ze is de Godin moeder van de Goden en heeft controle over de natuur en dieren. Daarom zie je in haar kledij en juwelen ook afbeeldingen van dieren. Het originele beeld stond in de Tempel van Artimes die echter vernietigd werd door overstromingen. In het voormalige Romeinse Rijk vind je verschillende kopies van dit beeld, waaronder hier in Selçuk alsook in het Vaticaans Museum in Rome..
