Re: Miron, do you know what the "three graces" are?

He didn't say "grace", he said the "three graces." That's an element of Roman and Greek mythology that has more to do with three aspects of women, or three stages in their growth. The traditional depiction of the three graces, say Raphael or Rubens, is one of them connecting with the observer (like the girl on the left in the OP's picture), one indifferent (the girl on the right), and one aware but turning away or shielding their face (the girl in the center).

I think he nailed the concept.

What is a world comming too.

I don't know. You made quite a rude response to something that you didn't understand. You have done this many times. You really need to stop. If you see something you don't understand, don't attack. Instead, ask politely for more information, like "OK, I'm not getting it. How is this 'the three graces'?"

Grace on 3 girls seating on a biks waiting for something.

Yeah, and Raphael had his three graces holding apples. Go argue the merits of "holding something" and tell us how you outgun Raphael artistically. Ovenden had one of his three pulling another one's hair, three stages of maturity, much the same as Carnach did four centuries earlier.

You like to post some pictures don't put tilte on.

The title works for that image. I'm sorry you don't understand why it does, but for God's sake, don't be such a jerk about it.

Thanks for the education on Raphael's work as it relates to this photo, I didn't catch that and now I can appreciate the photo even more.

To OP, I'd like to see it in B&W if that's something you're considering.
