On the left is a young girl with long hair held in place with a white headband wearing a white short-sleeved dress. A spindle is visible immediately behind her. In the centre is a middle-aged woman with brown hair pulled back off her face, wearing a red, long-sleeved dress and a pearl necklace. She holds a thread in her right hand. To the right is an older woman with gray hair who is wearing a black dress. She holds a pair of scissors in her hand, getting ready to cut the thread. Les Parques or the Fates were the three divinities of a mythological pagan hell. Clotho held the spindle, Lachesis turned the thread around the spindle and Atropos cut the thread. Together they wove men's lives.
