De Moirai by Ysa De Moirai by Ysa
De Moirai (English: Moirae or The Fates) Are three personifications of Destiny. They controlled the thread of life of every mortal from birth to death.
From left to right they are:
Clotho: She spun the thread of life and controlled your birthplace.
Lachesis: She measured the thread of life.
Atropos: She cut the thread of life and chose the way a person died.
In the Art Nouveau circle there are represented the stages of life.
In the left upper corner Herakles brings Alkestis back from the dead and in the right upper corner Orpheus wants to save his love Eurydice from the underworld but was forbidden to look at her until they reached the sunlight. He however can't resist to look so therefor loses her again...

This drawing was made for the Manga exhibition held by Celestial Doujinshi Circle at the comic fair in Haarlem (4, 5, and 6th of june)
SO EVERYONE COME AND SEE IT!!!
Amoungst Celestial's circle, other Dutch doujinshi circles will be there too like [link]

Nice art! I would like to ask for permission if it's okay to have your art be part of my list on my site? I am looking forward to feature some great gods and goddesses on my site. You can check out my site here, at the bottom. Of course I'll put a credit that this is your own art. :)
Hope you'll agree! \(^_^)/

Very well done. I like how the piece is all tied together. Very creative with the man aging along behind the sisters as well. The colors fit beautifully and I also like the background bits in the corners. Thank you for sharing.

Great job with this! I love all the little details (like the aging faces and the fact you had different skin/hair colours for each of the three Moirai).

Wauw! De jurken zijn echt prachtig!
Dat verhaal van dat touw doorknippen aan het einde van iemands leven, doet me denken aan Hercules xD
Mooi stukje mythologie :D
