The Three Graces

Of the many statues that decorate St. Armand's Key, I'm fondest of the one that greets you as you first enter from the Ringling Causeway Bridge from Bird Key - Antonio Canova's The Three Graces. This one is a copy; the original is in the Hermitage Museum in Russia.

The Three Graces are the daughters of Zeus & Eurynome (his 1st wife): Euphrosyne (Beauty), Aglaea (Charm) & Thalia (Joy).
