An ancient tiled mosaic was recently discovered during an architectural dig in Greece. We have had it all wrong, lo, these many centuries. Weâ€™ve been depicting the Moirai also known as the Fates as crones, when in fact they were crows! In Greek mythology, crows were either tricksters or harbingers of death. Thus, I thought it appropriate I use this bird in my design.
In my version, there were three crows who measured out a humanâ€™s life: Clotho, the spinner of the thread of life, Lachesis who measured the thread, and Atropos who cut the thread. In addition, my crow Atropos was born without eyes -- she never knows whose thread or where in that humanâ€™s life she is cutting. The cutting is done without malice â€“ it is just a task that has to be done.
The scene in my design is the last act â€“ the cutting of the thread of life. I imagine the thread of life to be a rainbow of bright colors rather than a single colorless thread.
