Moirae Picture

The Moirae (or Fates) were the white-robed personifications of destiny. They controlled the thread of life of every mortal from birth to death (and beyond). The Moirae were usually described as cold, remorseless and unfeeling.

But if there's someone controlling our destiny then what are we but puppets?


This is my interpretation of one of the Fates. She weaves the thread of our lives and cuts it whenever the mood strikes her.
The thread is supposed to be strands of her hair. As I painted it I'm not sure if it's obvious. lol
