Beautiful Galatea Collection by Nicky Ree
GALATEIA was one of the Nereides, fifty goddess-nymphs of the sea. Her name means either "the goddess of calm seas" from galênê and theia or "milky-white" from galaktos. Galateia frequented the coast of Sicily where she attracted the attention of the Kyklops (Cyclops) Polyphemos. The giant wooed her with tunes from his rustic pipes, and offerings of cheese, milk, and wild fruit. The nymph, however, spurned his advances and consorted instead with a handsome Sicillian youth named Akis. When Polyphemos learned of this, he fell into a jealous rage and crushed the boy beneath a rock. Galateia was grief-stricken and transformed Akis into a stream.
Some say, Galateia was the mother by Polyphemos of Galatos, the eponymous king of Galatia in Asia Minor.
She was depicted in ancient art as a beautiful woman riding side-saddle on the back of a sea monster or fish-tailed god.
The above information was taken from the web in my search for a name for my new design.
Galatea is the 2nd design from the series inspired by the Water, Sea and Ocean Themed Collection.
I got inspired by the beautiful rich colours of marine life in the coral reefs and the beauty found in the colourful life in the oceans.
I drew the corals, shells, pearls and other sea and ocean graphic motifs used in the creation of the fabric in photoshop and from there formed my design idea for the new outfits.
The textures for "Galatea Collection" is 100% orginal hand drawn by Designing Nicky Ree. Available in several style sets and colours in my main store in Tropical Orchid
The sets available are as follows:
(1) Beautiful Galatea Collection :
