Artemisia of Caria

The collection is based on the Queen Artemisia of Halicarnassus who was crowned regent in 480BCE when her husband the King died. In his honor, she commissioned the building of The Mausoleum at Halicarnassus which is now one of the 7 Wonders of the Ancient World. She was a great Naval Warrior who led her troops into a successful battle against neighboring islands who believed a woman would not be strong enough to keep hold of her region without a King.

The bold floral pieces are inspired by the architectural details of the Mausoleum and by the forms of the sea which she navigated with great mastery to protect her territory.

Here is a collection to inspire you to conquer your goals!
