Aurora - Goddess of Morning
From the book where this image appears,
"[Aurora] is said to have been daughter of Titan and the earth, because the light of the morning seems to rise out of the earth, and to proceed from the sun, which immediately follows it. She is styled mother of the four winds, because, after a calm in the night, the winds rise in the morning, as attendant upon the sun, by whose heat and light they are begotten. There is no other goddess of whom we have so many beautiful descriptions in the poets."
This copyright free image will hopefully add a ray of light to your next crafting, school, or web design project.
