The Three Fates; The Triumph of Death (Tapestry)

The Three Fates; The triumph of Death. Tapestry, Netherlands, early 16th c. The three fates, Clotho, Lachesis and Atropos, represent Death in this tapestry, as they triumph over the fallen body of Chastity. In mythology the Fates controlled the span of human life; Clotho was the spinner, Lachesis was the drawer of lots, and Atropos represented the inevitable end to life.
