The Three Graces, by Hans Baldung.

Thalia (Greek: Θαλία Thalía, "Abundance"), in ancient Greek religion, was one of the three Graces or Charites with her sisters Aglaea and Euphrosyne. They were usually found dancing in a circle. They were the daughters of Zeus and either the Oceanid Eurynome or Eunomia, goddess of good order and lawful conduct. Thalia was the goddess of festivity and rich banquets. The Greek word thalia is an adjective applied to banquets, meaning rich, plentiful, luxuriant and abundant.[1]
