Clothos: by miskis Clothos: by miskis
The youngest of the three aspects of fate in Greek Mythology.

Clothos is the spinner of life's thread

Lachesis the middle aged, drawer of lots, measures the length of one's strand, thus life.
Represented by the lengths of twine

Atropos the elder, makes the final cut.
Represented by the scissors.

********************

I had originally intended on making one piece for each aspect but..um yeah..the background web killed that notion. ;) maybe a future project?
Done for Neosynthesis Chronicle 17 Myth
I did a series for this Chronicle, inspired by Piers Anthony's books Incarnations of Immortality Which I first started reading at about age 12 with book one On a Pale Horse and have loved and reread many times since then. :)
There is:
Fate
Death
Time
Evil
Mother Nature
War
Which I will submit to DA as the whim hits me.

Oh come now..
if I submitted them all now
what would be your inspiration to toddle over to neosynthesis and looksee there ?? (and they can be viewed there slightly larger then I will sumbit here. :P)
;)

due to personal events I never finished 'good' and 'nyx'.
Again..maybe future projects? One never knows.

********************
*whew* now for the credits...


This could not have been done without the lovely ~Borzag-Stock who took my request and gave me EXACTLY what I needed.
:bow: much love and respect.

The pieces of hanging twine from ~flordelys-brushes
If you use PS/PSCS brushes and havent been there..I insist!

Scissors, twine spool, and upper background clouds from [link]


*EDIT*
others in the series:
Thanatos
Mars
Beelzebub
Chronos
Gaia

Walk the path fate has given you with strength and courage.

Clothos: by =miskis is one of my all time favourite manipulations on Deviantart. One piece of a beautiful series of mythical characters you should have a look at. ( Featured by nighty )

I like how you can see her spinning the thread of life from a bowl of ether. I also like the reds you decided to include in her dress...since it helps bring the eye towards her in all that blue.
