ISdN - Arachne 5 Picture

I Sovrani del Nulla - The Lords of Nothing


Dei, Eroi, Santi. Erano i signori del mondo, salvatori dell'umanità, patroni e custodi, esempi di virtù. Ma ora gli uomini li hanno dimenticati, hanno abbandonato i propri miti, spento le sacre aureole, relegato il divino ai margini di una società pragmatica e materialista prossima al deperimento.
L'umanità ha rinunciato all'eternità in favore di una labile contingenza.


Gods, Heroes, Saints. They used to be the Lords of the world, mankind's Saviors, patrons and guardians, pure examples of virtue. But now people have forgotten them, they've left myths behind, put off sacred halos, and relegated the numinous at the edge of a pragmatic and materialistic society on the way of perishment.
Humanity gave up eternity in favor of fleeting contingency

Character: Arachne, in Greco-Roman mythology was a great mortal weaver who boasted that her skill was greater than that of Athena, goddess of crafts. Arachne refused to acknowledge that her knowledge came, in part at least, from the goddess. The offended goddess set a contest between the two weavers. The goddess was so envious of the magnificent tapestry and the mortal weaver's success, and perhaps offended by the girl's choice of subjects (the loves and transgressions of the gods), that she destroyed the tapestry and loom and slashed the girl's face. Ultimately, the goddess turned Arachne into a spider. Arachne simply means "spider" in Greek.
