The Three Graces (Aglaia, Euphrosyne and Thalia) by Antonio Canova [replica]
According to Greek mythology the three daughters of Zeus and Euryoneme were called Euphrosyne, Aglaia and Thalia. They were traditionally associated with Aphrodite, the goddess of love. Canova arranged the beautiful sisters in a loose semi-circle so that they complement one another in their poses and gazes, entwined arms and narrow swathes of drapery. The sculpture was commissioned by the 6th Duke of Bedford and installed on a pedestal (which could be rotated) in a specially built Temple at his country house, Woburn Abbey.
This replica of one of Antonio Canova's most famous sculptures is in mint condition. It is not in marble as the original but looks nevertheless very elegant and gracious.
The bottom is covered with a nice red felt to protect your furniture from scratches.
