    This is my favourite Cameo representation that of Eos & Nyx.

    Eos the goddess of day with the crown of wheat and bright smile and Nyx with the veil symbolic of night, the poppies in her hair symbolising morpheus the god of sleep and her companion owl. The carving is exquisite my personal favourite is the serenity on the face of Nyx and her calm attitude.

    Who do you prefer the Goddess of Day or the Goddess of Night ?

      Lovely cameo Kitty. The detail of the carving and the intricate setting are both beautiful.

      Kitty, I love this one. I am very much drawn towards the Grecian and Roman themes/Gods and Goddesses. I love the historical vignettes. I have seen several of Cameolovers cameos on here, and she has great taste also, and cameos that are superb in quality and craftsmanship; as your cameo here is.
