"The Three Graces" (see related A), 200 BC Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York City, New York, USA

Three young girls in a dance-like-pose representing Aglaia (Beauty), Euphrosyne (Mirth), and Thalia (Abundance). Others have interpreted the Three Graces as representing the daughters of Esculapius, Hygea, Meditrina and Panacea. This composition is recognizable because it follows canonic formula of carefully calculated grace and beauty.
