PeggyB says: Just wonderful concept! Great that you used a Chinese woman for the moon. I guess she is supposed to be Chang'e? Are the other two women known mythological creatures, too? ~ Reply?

     Catherine Swinford replied to this: Not to my knowledge, Peggy. I just tend to imagine an athletic African woman when I picture the sun as a goddess, the moon more of a delicate porcelain doll type, and that easily translates into the Chang'e archetype. The goddess pouring out the stars is my own addition in the ancient Greek spirit. I am glad you like my interpretation. =)

Erich Heidewald says: Excellent touch to have the Sun and the Moon holding the Earth between, like the moment of an eclipse, while the stars look on from afar. ~ Reply?

Natacha Chohra says: Oh Catherine, this is wonderful!! ~ Reply?
