The Fates - Pandemic

 I have been working on this, The Fates - Pandemic. It's very large, 130cm x 170cm. Oil on canvas with mixed media, (plaster and thread). 

The Fates or Moirai – are a group of three weaving goddesses who assign individual destinies to mortals at birth. 

Consistently portrayed as three women spinners, each of the three Fates had a different task, revealed by her very name: Clotho (the Spinner), spun the thread of life, Lachesis (the Alloter), measured its allotted length, and Atropos (the Inflexible) cut it off with her shears. Sometimes, each of the Fates was assigned to a specific period of time: More details here.

I have also loosly incorperated the elements, fire(Clotho), Earth (Lachesis) and Water (Atropos).

Here are some close ups.
