Bronze sculpture details
Graceful companions Gaiety, glamour and good cheer – who would not like to have all this in their home and garden. Bodirsky's companions bring it to you in the form of Euphrosyne ("mirth"), Aglaea ("splendour") and Thalia ("abundance"), known in mythology as the Three Charites or Graces and often depicted throughout the history of art. They are usually shown locked in an embrace; Bodirsky, however, makes three separate sculptures of them which accompany the guest as "signposts" on the way to the place of the festivities.
Edition in bronze, cast using the lost wax technique, chased and patinated by hand.
Also available as a set!

After that Bodirsky continued her studies in painting and sculptural figures. She also attended various seminars and courses with internationally renowned artists and professors. In 1986, she founded her own ceramic studio in Oberrotweil next to Kaiserstuhl.
