She is described as "of good counsel", and is the personification of divine order, law, and custom. Themis means "divine law" rather than human ordinance, literally means "that which is put in place", compared with the derivative títhēmi (Greek: τίθημι), meaning "to put". To the ancient Greeks she was originally the organizer of the "communal affairs of humans, particularly assemblies. In Greek Mthology, Hediod mentions Themis among the six sons and six daughters of Gaia and Uranus (Earth and Sky). Among these Titans of primordial myth, few were venerated at specific sanctuaries in classical times. When Themis is disregarded, Nemesis brings just and wrathful retribution, thus Themis shared the Nemesion temple at Rhamnous. s Themis presided over the proper relation between man and woman, the basis of the rightly ordered family (the family was seen as the pillar of the deme), and judges were often referred to as "themistopóloi" (the servants of Themis). Such was the basis for order upon Olympus too. Even Hera addressed her as "Lady Themis." The name of Themis might be substituted for Adrasetia in telling of the birth of Zeus on Crete. Themis was present at Delos to witness the birth of Apollo. According to Ovid, it was Themis rather than Zeus who told Deukalion to throw the bones of "his Mother (Earth)" over his shoulder to create a new race of humankind after the Deluge.Known as the Oath of Themis this is the still pledge of the graduate from the school of Law in Greece. Freely translated would read:"Before the president and the dean of the school of law, I give my solemn pledge to faithfully abide by the ordinances of justice wit all my heart and soul, and that on leaving this sacred institution I will render my services to all those that need my education and training, always in peace and ethical conduct. I will pursue the path of righteousness in life, and dedicate myself to that which is true and just, and to the protection of virtue and wisdom. May this pledge be accompanied by the blessings of the professors and my beloved teachers, and may the gods be with me during all my life" Originating from a sculptor's studio with more than twenty year presence in the greek market this small anaglyph measures 6.7"x10.2" (17cmx26cm) An innovative idea by the artists lightly painted by hand.
