The Three Graces

The most amazing ‘Three Graces' with models Jezebelle, Larissa Angharada from Canada and Joy Draiki from the Netherlands, at their pre-Raphaelite themed event at AURA Studio

I have for some years wanted to pay photographic homage to the sculpture by Antonio Canova’s, ‘The Three Graces’, daughters of Zeus - Euphrosyne, Aglaea and Thalia – who were said to represent youth/beauty (Thalia), mirth (Euphrosyne), and elegance (Aglaea).

There are a number of modern versions of this sculpture, and my photograph is our collaborative view, rather than a replication, especially as the models have very long hair which was left trailing, rather than tied in a bun as in the original sculpture.
