Three of cups or minor arcana

Click for: Quicktime version / Flash version

"Although various sources for myth refer to different numbers of Graces or Charites, most often they are depicted as a trio. Each of these three goddesses represented an individual quality that was revered by the ancient Greeks. It was the poet Hesiod who named the Graces in his Theogony: "Then Eurynome, Ocean's fair daughter, bore to Zeus the three Graces, all fair-cheeked, Aglaia, Euphrosyne, and shapely Thalia; their alluring eyes glance from under their brows, and from their eyelids drips desire that unstrings the limbs."

Transmutating as usual, Sam Renseiw recently framed new footage of Bertel T's exquisite trio, on site in Bindesbøll's museion - Expect more from these spaces in the coming posts.
