Beautiful painting by Zeng Hao! Green Tara - originally a Hindu goddess and later adopted by some forms of Buddhism. She is known as the mother of liberation, a protectress, an obstacle remover, and an earth mother.
The Norns - Norse - govern fate, Urd - what has been, Verdandi - what is, Skuld - what is to come. They spin the threads and weave the tapestry of fate for each person's life. The length of the thread is the life span, even the Gods have their own threads
