“The Charites” are the epicenter of this 100% MANTILITY silk scarf .”Charites” or Graces are minor goddesses of charm, beauty, nature, human creativity, and fertility. The Charites were usually considered the daughters of Zeus and Eurynome, though they were also said to be daughters of Dionysus and Aphrodite. Homer wrote that they were part of the retinue of Aphrodite. The Charites were also associated with the Greek underworld and the Eleusinian Mysteries.
Although the Graces usually numbered three, some other Graces are sometimes mentioned. On this scarf the designer chooses to depict four Graces and one Sorrow. The names of the Graces depicted are Aglaea (“Splendor”), Antheia (“Blossoms”), Eudaimonia (“Happiness”), Paidia (“Play”). The one Sorrow is called Moiraia (“Fatal”).
