"Le Cortege de Thetis" (see details) (see related A), 1500 Baryolomeo di Giovanni Louvre Museum, Paris, France
Thetis, a Nereid daughter of Nereus with Doris and a marine deity who could metamorphose as much as Proteus could. Thetis was given in marriate to a mortal (Peleus) because her son was destined to be greater that his prospective father. She bore Achiles who was mortal and was killed during the war with Troy. The centaur shown above presumably is Chiron, the mentor of Aesculapius and close friend of Peleus.
