Nymphs were female nature deities in ancient Greece which represented different landscapes. There were five types of nymphs, Celestial, Wood, Sea, Underworld and Land ones. They were often described as very beautiful female beings who loved to dance and believed in free love. Although they were not inmortal themselves, they could give birth to inmortal beings if mated with a god. Artemis, Apollo and other gods had nymphs as part of their retainers. Satyrs were obsessed with nymphs and they often pursued them.
