Nyx and Morpheus Picture

Νύχτα και Μορφέας

In Greek mythology, Nyx (Nox in Roman translation) was the primordial goddess of the night. A shadowy figure, Night stood at or near the beginning of creation, and was the mother of personified gods such as Sleep and Death. Her appearances in mythology are sparse, but reveal her as a figure of exceptional power, and extreme beauty.

Morpheus ("he who forms, shapes, moulds", from the Greek morphe) is the Greek god of dreams.
Morpheus has the ability to take any human's form and appear in dreams. He is the son or brother of Hypnos, the god of sleep. Nyx (the goddess of night) is his mother/grandmother. The servants of Hypnos — the Oneiroi — are rulers of visions, and also include Phobetor (also known as Icelus), and Phantasos.
Morpheus sends images of humans in dreams or visions, and is responsible for shaping dreams, or giving shape to the beings which inhabit dreams. Phobetor made fearsome dreams (etymologically related to "phobia" from the Greek φόβος "fear"). Phantasos produced tricky and unreal dreams (hence "fantasy", "phantasmagoria", etc.). Together these attendants of Hypnos rule the realm of dreams. Morpheus also had special responsibility for the dreams of kings and heroes. For these reasons Morpheus is often referred to as "Morpheus the Greek god of dreams" in superiority to his brothers.(for more info visit this [link])

Η Νυξ ήταν κυρίαρχη αρχέγονη και κοσμογονική μορφή, την οποία φοβόταν και σεβόταν ακόμα και ο ίδιος ο θεός Δίας. Σύμφωνα με τη Θεογονία του Ησιόδου, η Νυξ είχε γεννηθεί από το Χάος.
