Description Image from "Woman's Share in Primitive Culture," a late 19th century anthropology book. The image shows a woman of an unidentified group weaving in front of her hut. The caption makes an exotic construction of a harsh reality, by describing her as "Atropos [name of the Greek supra-goddess] drawing out the thread or weft of life."
