This mosaic is on wood and measures 8 1/2" X 5 1/8" X 3/4". I will often create a mosaic after an event, in this case after a bilateral pulmonary embolism last month. This mosaic/construction is called Moirai (The Three Fates of Ancient Greece)
They were :
Clotho (/ˈkloʊθoʊ/, Greek Κλωθώ [klɔːˈtʰɔː] – "spinner") spun the thread of life from her Distaff onto her Spindle. Her Roman equivalent was Nona, (the 'Ninth'), who was originally a goddess called upon in the ninth month of pregnancy.
Lachesis (/ˈlækɨsɪs/, Greek Λάχεσις [ˈlakʰesis] – "allotter" or drawer of lots) measured the thread of life allotted to each person with her measuring rod. Her Roman equivalent was Decima (the 'Tenth').
Atropos (/ˈætrəpɒs/, Greek Ἄτροπος [ˈatropos] – "inexorable" or "inevitable", literally "unturning", sometimes called Aisa) was the cutter of the thread of life. She chose the manner of each person's death; and when their time was come, she cut their life-thread with "her abhorred shears". Her Roman equivalent was Morta ('Dead One').
The three central green cabochons represent the Fates. It may seem so empty, but when you look at them you see your own reflection as you can see mine. I was blessed by the Fates. I am still here.
This piece is composed of glass cabochons, Van Gogh tiles, jewelry, beads, and acrylic leaves. The piece is painted black on the sides and has a hanger on the back so it is ready to just hang on the wall. My signature is also on the back. This is meant for indoor use only.
Thank you for stopping by to view my work.
