Thalia, one of the three Charites, also referred to as the Graces with her two sisters, Euphrosyne and Aglaea. In fine art, these sisters usually depicted together. In this painting, I visualized that Thalia, living securely in her garden during the lockdown of an ancient plague. In our time, when we stay home during the lockdown from a pandemic. We did it out of love, and have faith that our act of sacrifice serving the purpose of saving lives and give us hope for the foreseen future.
