The Three Graces, or Three Charities, of Greek mythology were Aglaia, Euphrosyne, and Thalia - goddesses of beauty, joy, harmony, pleasure, grace, festivity, adornment, dance, and song. Daughters of Zeus and sea-nymph Eurynome, they were also the attendants, or handmaidens, of Aphrodite and Hera and protectors of vegetation.
