Beautiful green patina.  

The Three Graces (or Three Charities) reflect a statuary group from ancient Greek times.

They were the divine embodiments of beauty, grace and artistic inspiration, three sisters called Euphrosyne, Thalia and Aglaea.

In their earliest form, they are thought to represent the powers of vegetation, and down to the modern times are often reflected in paintings and sculpture. Click here for the Renaissance painter Rafael's version.

Julia Domna was from a prominent Syrian family and at an early age had a soothsayer proclaim that she would marry an emperor. Septimius took this prediction seriously and married her. She was mother of Geta and Caracalla and served well in the role of Empress from 193 to 217 AD, when is said to have starved herself to death after Macrinus assumed the throne.
