The other two are Star Imposter and Fast Monster.

Star Imposter (https://collections.carli.illinois.edu/digital/collection/iwu_art/id/1173/rec/1) shows a female in elaborate gown and wearing a helmet stands on left, right arm bent at elbow, parellel with the ground, palm up and hand resting on a pedastal. A winged figure stands on her hand, facing away from the viewer. At the bottom of the work on a black background is Poseidan with staff gazing at constellation; black mass with image of Roman or Greek soldier holding trident and four horses along bottom.
