Painting: Oil on Canvas.
Goddess is an original oil painting depicting ancient Greek goddess Hygeia
This image is painted from a photograph I took at the museum of Epidaurus in April 2015
She was the daughter of Asclepios, the God of medicine and worshipped as the Goddess of Health.
Her worship probably started in the 4th century at Epidauros in association with the great temple to Asclepios that was bringing thousands of infirm people to that city for medical assistance.
