Greek History/Mythology The Three Graces ( Charites) were goddesses of beauty who lived on Olympus in the company of either Apollo and the Muses, or Venus. They are generally considered daughters of Jupiter, and although their number varied, the classical period counted three: Aglaia (Splendor), Euphrosne (Serenity), and Thalia (Prosperity). Sandro Botticelli Three Graces is a Very Brilliant work done by a Master artist i admire his allot, then i came across this Fresco from Pompeii first century B.C. What grab my attention the most were the poses of the Three Graces and the marksmanship work done by an even greater Master artist around first century B.C.
