The Furies were goddesses of justice and order. In art they are traditionally depicted as three ugly women, however considering the old ways of looking at spirited women, at women who won’t conform, it is highly questionable whether the Furies actually deserved such a depiction. Their “job” was to restore harmony and punish only those who commit crimes against the natural order of things. The Furies in Roman mythology correspond to the Erinyes in Greek mythology, who were daughters of the primordial goddess Nyx (‘the night’).
Loosely inspired by mythology, the Sabinian Furies are an archetypical symbol of power and justice, representing the Fury that either lays dormant, or roams, inside of every woman. The Furies are a trilogy of paintings by Sabina Nore.
