favourite faces for favourite mythic ladies: Pandia with Danay Garcia
Once Zeus was joined with Selene in love; and she bore a daughter Pandeia, exceeding lovely amongst the deathless gods.
Once a month, bright faced Pandia reaches her long fingers up into the sky to take hold of the evening star and slowly pulls herself up from the earth and into that spreading darkness. From there she lights the fields and cities below, casting her silver shadows across the world. There she is happy and complete and full, her mother’s daughter. But morning comes soon enough and Pandia lowers herself down to the ground once more, light-stepping toes touching the cold grass before sunlight reaches it, leaving drops of early dew clinging to them. And then she is gone, youthful Pandia at rest, brightness put away until next time.
