Description

Created in the second century A.D., the Museum's marble The Three Graces is a Roman copy of a Greek statue group from the second century B.C. These three young girls, linked in a dance-like pose, represent Aglaia (Beauty), Euphrosyne (Mirth), and Thalia (Abundance). Young, beautiful, and modest, they personify the graceful sensuousness of the female form; their closest connection is with Aphrodite, the goddess of love and beauty, whom they serve as handmaidens. This frieze-like composition in the Museum's collection is typical of classicizing art of the second and first century B.C. Our reduced-scale reproduction was created using a combination of three- dimensional imaging and traditional sculpture techniques.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Almost perfect I have long admired the rhythm and balance of this sculpture when visiting. When seen from any viewpoint it is almost perfect. The Three Graces was an inspiration beyond its time. Thank you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from beautiful I like the statue very much, the workmanship and proportions are good. Of course I realize that modern taste value very little this kind of beauty. But then, I'm not very modern.
