This reproduction is based on an original Hellenistic period wall relief sculpture of the three Graces, constant companions of Aphrodite, the Greek goddess of love and beauty. The original (c. 1st century BC) is on permanent display in the Louvre Museum, Paris. The three Graces of Greek mythology, also called Charities, were young, beautiful, and modest. They personified the graceful sensuousness of the female form. In this relief the articulation of the figures conveys a naturalism typical of the sculpture of the Hellenistic Age that distinguishes it from the more idealized Greek prototypes. Made from fiber stone, indoor or outdoor use, cathedral finish (aged grey), rough aged texture, ready to hang, 16"H x 15"W x 3"D.
Fiber Stone is a mixture of stone cast directly into the surface then reinforced with a fiberglass backing. Next it is carefully stained to give the appearance of age. Each piece is unique with its own imperfections that add beauty to this handmade product. The resulting product is lightweight, safe for outdoor use, and less fragile than concrete.
