Sculpture Hearst Simeon Castle
For the lovers of beauty, this vintage postcard depicts a copy of the famous Three Graces statue which is located in the Hearst Castle at Sam Simeon, California. The original sculpture was made by noted Italian Neoclassical Sculptor Antonio Canova in early 19th century.
Three graces shown in this statue were the daughters of Zeus, the legendary god of thunder and sky in ancient Greece. These daughters of Zeus are known as Euphrosyne, Aglaea, and Thalia who were said to represent Mirth, Elegance, and Youth/Beauty.
This copy of the Three Graces is placed in the Hearst Castle which was the residence of newspaper magnate William Randolph Hearst from 1919 until 1947. Hearst died in 1951 and Hearst Castle was converted into a California State Park in 1954.
Hearst Castle is an iconic landmark and has attracted millions of visitors since 1958, when it was first opened to public. This vintage postcard is a good choice for your collection as it symbolizes several things at the same time.
