Artist's Description


Tales of Nymphs in Greek mythology and religion abound, there were revered as the spirits of specific natural features – and often were identified with the part of nature in which they dwelled, The Oreads, were mountain nymphs. Others were associated with a particular function of nature, the Hamadryads, or tree nymphs, whose lives began and ended with that of a particular tree.

The name “nymph” comes from the Greek word that means “young woman”, and so naturally these beings were considered to be female. Indeed, they were represented as young, beautiful, musical, amorous, and gentle youthful creatures. And while there is some question about whether they were immortal or not – Hamadryads in particular were linked with the lives of their chosen trees – it is believed that they were extremely long lived.

A beautiful, ever-young creature that inhabits the lovliest of all wilderness places including clear lakes, streams, and crystalline caverns. They do not like any form of intrusion but there is a 100% that a nymph will be friendly if approached by another good creature. Nymphs are exceptionally intelligent and are very rarely found.
