"Aqueous" by Mark Mawson, via Behance. This is an underwater ink bloom, and this one somehow reminds me of a dancer, partially bent over at the waist, arms hanging by her sides, with one knee raised, toes pointed. Does anyone else see anything so specific?
In Greek mythology, Bolbe (Greek: Βόλβη) was an extremely beautiful Lake Goddess or Nymph who dwelled in a Thessalian lake of the same name (modern Lake Volvi). She was the daughter of Oceanus and Tethys. Like other lake Gods and Goddesses, Bolbe's offspring were Limnades who are Nymphs living in fresh water lakes. According to Athenaeus, Bolbe was the mother of Olynthus by Heracles.
Chalchiuhtlicue ("She of the Jade Skirt") was an Aztec goddess of love, beauty, youth, lakes, rivers, seas, streams, horizontal waters, storms, and baptism. She was also a Goddess of Childbirth and protector of labouring women. Chalchiutlicue's association with both water and fertility is derived from the Aztecs' common association of the womb with waters. This dual role gave her both life-giving and a life-ending role in Aztec mythology.
