Spirits of water

Naiad 1

"Naiad, (from Greek naiein, 'to flow'), in Greek mythology, one of the nymphs of flowing water -- springs, rivers, fountains, lakes. The Naiads, appropriately in their relation to freshwater, were represented as beautiful, lighthearted, and beneficent."

- The Encyclopedia Brittanica
