In Greek art, Apollo was depicted as a beardless youth, bearing a lyre, or equipped as a hunter with bow and arrow. He was the master musician who delighted all of the gods on Mt. Olympus. He was also the god of the bow and archery and the god of healing. He was also the god of light not sun, for that is the god called Helios. He was also the god of truth for no untrue word ever came from his mouth. His tree was the laurel tree and his chief animals that were sacred to him were the dolphin and the crow.


Ares was depicted wearing typical military cloths and armour. He was the God of War, and, unlike Athena, represented the more brute strength part of war. He has been represented in many different ways, from a coward, to a brave heroic figure. He was not a big figure in mythology and is mostly seen as a symbol of war. His bird was the vulture, which fitted him quite nicely. It is also said that the dog was his animal.

She was also the goddess of the moon as her brother was the god of light. She was believed to dwell in wild places, accompanied by a retinue of nymphs. Artemis was noted as a terrible adversary when angered, symbolic of the sudden and capricious fury of nature. It was as a goddess of women's life in general that Artemis acquired her seemingly contradictory role as a goddess of fertility and childbirth. Artemis was depicted as a young woman bearing bow and arrow, often accompanied by a stag or a hunting dog. Her lunar aspect was sometimes signified by a torch carried in the hand. Artemis was the leader hunter to the gods which was a odd position for a woman. She was a protector of the youth being a good hunter. She was at times very kind and sweet like all of the gods and goddesses could be, but at times she would get very angry and hateful, especially if someone killed a dear in her sacred grounds or, even at times if someone killed just for sport. The cypress was sacred to her as were all animals, but of all the animals, the deer was most loved by her. (Click Name Above to View More Info)

She was referred to as Pallas Athene in her capacity as a protective goddess. Her icon, the palladium, was believed to protect the city from harm. In addition to the olive, Athena's gifts to humanity included the plough, the loom, and the flute. She was also known as Athena Polias in her capacity as goddess of the people or polity of Athens.
