The story of Diana and Actaeon originates from Ovid’s “Metamorphoses.” Actaeon, a young hunter, accidentally stumbles upon Diana while she is bathing with her nymphs. Angered by his intrusion and feeling violated, Diana transforms Actaeon into a stag. He is then pursued and ultimately killed by his hunting dogs, unable to recognize their master.
