Marble dust is combined with cement or synthetic resins to make reconstituted or cultured marble. The appearance of marble can be simulated with faux marbling, a painting technique that imitates the stone's colour patterns.
In Roman mythology, Diana was the goddess of the hunt, moon and birthing, being associated with wild animals and woodland. She was equated with the Greek goddess Artemis, through she had an independent origin in Italy.
