Beauty is a characteristic of a person, animal, place, object, or idea that provides a perceptual experience of pleasure or satisfaction. Beauty is studied as part of aesthetics, sociology, social psychology, and culture. An “ideal beauty” is an entity which is admired, or possesses features widely attributed to beauty in a particular culture, for perfection.
Death – The concept of Death as a sentient entity has existed in many societies since the beginning of recorded history. In English, Death is often given the name “the Grim Reaper”. In Jewish tradition, Death was referred to as the Angel of Life and Death (Malach HaMavet) or the Angel of Dark and Light stemming from the Bible and Talmudic lore.

Chrysopeleia (/ˌkrɪsɵpɨˈliːə/; Greek Χρυσοπέλεια) was a Hamadryad nymph. A hamadryad who was one day in great danger, as the oak-tree which she inhabited was undermined by a mountain torrent. Arcas, who was hunting in the neighbourhood, discovered her situation, led the torrent in another direction, and secured the tree by a dam. Chrysopeleia became by Arcas the mother of Elatus and Apheidas.

“Eidyia” by Jeremy Beswick. 16″ x 22″ Giclee w/ 19c gold hand-finished paint. Ed of 10 S/N. $225
Eidyia (or Idyia) was an Okeanis nymph of the town of Kolkhis (Colchis) in Aia at the far eastern end of the Black Sea and the wife of the magician-king Aeetes.
Her name was derived from the Greek word eidô, “to see” or “know.” In the familial sense she probably personified the magical power of the eye, which in Greek superstition was the source of the witch’s supernatural power, strengthened by the beams of the ancestral sun.

“Clotho” by Jeremy Beswick. 16″ x 22″ Giclee w/ 19c gold hand-finished paint. Ed of 11 S/N. $225
Clotho (/ˈkloʊθoʊ/; Greek: Κλωθώ) is the youngest of the Three Fates or Moirai – including her sisters Lachesis and Atropos, in ancient Greek mythology. Her Roman equivalent is Nona. Clotho was responsible for spinning the thread of human life. She also made major decisions, such as when a person was born, thus in effect controlling people’s lives. This power enabled her not only to choose who was born, but also to decide when gods or mortals were to be saved or put to death. For example, when Pelops was killed and boiled by his father, it was Clotho who brought him back to life.
As one of the three fates her contribution to mythology was immense. Clotho, along with her sisters and Hermes, was given credit for creating the alphabet for their people. Even though Clotho and her sisters were real goddesses, their representation of fate is more focused upon in Greek mythology. Thread represented human life and her decisions represented the fate of all men in society.
