Galatea was a sea nymph who loved Acis, but was loved by the giant Polyphemus. Polyphemus was jealous of Galatea's love for Acis, so he killed him with a boulder. Distraught, Galatea then turned his blood into the river Acis. The Acis River flowed past Akion (Acium) near Mount Etna in Sicily.

The threads are pressed between transparent glass in a wood frame. Read more this and watch a work video I made - all on my website. Hope you like it MAD ;-)
