Illustration (c.1920s) of a Centauresse, or Centauride (Kentauride) from Greek mythology. A female member of the Centaur (Kentauroi) tribe.
'In the high woods there was none comelier of all the centaur-girls..
She combed her glossy hair, and twined her curls in turn with rosemary or violets or roses, and sometimes she wore a pure white lily.
Twice a day she bathed her face in the clear brook that fell from Pagasae’s high forest, twice she plunged her body in its flow, nor would she wear on her left side and shoulder any skin but what became her from best-chosen beasts'
.. on the Centauresse 'Hylonome' - from Ovid's Metamorphoses.
