The Three Fates
18 feet long, 9 feet high

Steel and bronze with patina

Myth has it that the Three Fates, Clotho, Lachesis, and Atrophos, control the length of a person's life.  The figure on the left, Clotho, spins the thread of life. The second fate, Lachesis, measures the length of the thread and determines the length of life. The third fate, Atrophos, cuts the thread of life.
