The Three Graces

RB002033

New product

The three goddesses are depicted here, being held by the shoulders, on the same plane as in a dance motif. But they do not dance; the rhythm suggested by knee flexing, unevenly high hips is only an exaggeration of the classical period's hip motifs. It is a new static rhythm where the taste for feminine and solid shapes has replaced the research almost exclusively devoted in the 5th century to the study of the athletic nude.

At the origin of this motif, it seems that there was a painted motif, which would explain the linear presentation of the three sculptures, on the same plane; one can imagine that they attended a scene of Olympus, and the motif, well in the taste of the Hellenistic period, was then isolated and reproduced in plastic.

The Graces, sometimes also known as Charites, companions of the gods and heroes, Hermes' favourite, are a motif frequently depicted in the iconography of the Hellenistic and Roman times, as soon as the use of depicting female deities naked is introduced.

The role of goddesses is in fact, in the Hellenistic period, almost exclusively to attend pleasant moments in the life of men and gods, whose beneficial presence guarantees lasting quality and authenticity.
