The Three Graces

The three Charities, or Graces from Theoi

The three Graces, usually represented as nude females crowned with or carrying myrtle boughs, were the children of the powerful sky god Zeus and Eurynome, the Titan goddess of pastures and waterlands.

These three attendants of Aphrodite and Hera, who represented Joy, Charm, and Beauty, were often seen holding hands and dancing.
