Nymphs (ninfas)

These Greek goddesses of little importance had their own location in caves, mountains and rivers. They were imagined as young beauties always dedicated to singing and love.

Estas deusas gregas de reduzida importância tinham localização própria como: grutas, montanhas, rios. Imaginavam-nas como beldades sempre jovens dedicadas ao canto e ao amor.
