Superb Vintage cameo depicting 2 well-known Greek mythology goddesses: EOS and NYX. NYX was the goddess of the night. She was an ancient deity envisaged as the very substance of the night - a veil of dark mists drawn across the sky to obscure the light of (AITHER) the shining blue of the heavens. EOS was the rosy-fingered goddess of the dawn. She rose to the sky from the river (OCEANUS) at the start of each day and with her rays of light dispersed the mists of night.Well-carved cameo in high relief. The subtle orange color on the background only enhances the beauty of this cameo.
