PSAMATHE was the Nereid goddess of sand and the wife of Proteus, herder of seals.
Psamathe was seduced by the Aiginetan king Aiakos (Aeacus) who ambushed her on the beach. She tried to escape his grasp by transforming herself into a seal but he refused to release his hold and so she conceded, bearing him a son named Phokos (Phocus) "the Seal". The boy was his father's favourite and his half-brothers Peleus and Telamon grew jealous and murdered him. Psamathe sent a giant wolf to avenge Phokos by harrassing the flocks of Peleus but he managed to assuage her wrath with proper sacrifices.
Psamathe's name means "Sand-Goddess" from the Greek words psammos (sand) and theia (goddess).
My Meta_Bubbles are gods and entities, once, and still today, believed to be real and transcendent. They are not only objects that are subjects of perception. Virtual reality states that the objects that surround us are only screens that project their essence. In my Bubble series, the objects are the main subject matter. This stems from the search for meaning. The circular motion of meaning is created by human perception and continues to a sharing motion of the objects around us. The objects exist in their own right and by the association between them, and they are real as long as we believe our perception.
