norns

Many mythologies speak of the weavers of fortune, three women who were older and wiser than the gods. Sometimes referred to as the three fates their woven webs governed the destiny of all things. This piece is an original design celebrating them.

In the Norse belief they were the Norns; Urda, Werdandi, and Skulda, who lived among the roots of the world tree Yggdrasil. The Greeks called them the Moirai. Clotho, Lachesis, and Atropos sang of the things that were, are, and will be. It both sets of myths these were the women who spun, measured, and cut the threads of a man's life.

The Celtic tradition gives us another powerful image of a three-fold feminine force, the Triple Goddess. As three who are one, this single deity encompassed the aspects of Maiden, Mother, and Crone. Linked with the phases of the moon she symbolized the perpetual circle of life, death, and rebirth. She was among the first of many triads that symbolized life's cycles.
