The Pythia was the priestess at Apollo's oracle in Delphi. The name comes from Python, the dragon that was slain by Apollo. The Pythia operated as a vehicle for Apollo's will to be known to those on earth. A believer would make a sacrifice and present a question to a male priest. The male priest would then present the question to the Pythia. The Pythia sat on a bronze tripod in the adytum, or inner chamber of Apollo's temple. In this sacred chamber the spirit of Apollo overcame the Pythia and inspired the prophecy...Continuing his role of a middleman, the priest would interpret the Pythia's response for the questioner. (Powell 172)

This looks fascinating. I like the mixing of the different colours and light levels as well as the way they "wave" through the space exactly like I imageing a nebula would.
