This text proposes to examine the virtual lives and creative activities of two metaverse avatars, Eupalinos Ugajin and Naxos Loon, by examining the correlations between their acts of creation and the notion of 'play'. These will be examined against the backgrounds of Arthur Koestler's book "The Act of Creation" and Johan Huizinga's "Home Ludens"; involving a scrutiny on how these may apply to a strand of art making involving three dimensionally embodied avatars, which can be observed in online virtual worlds today.
