In ancient Greece and Rome there were many deities to worship, and while major gods, like Zeus were worshipped almost by default, the lesser gods and goddesses were worshipped to represent your priorities. Soldiers may worship Ares, god of war, partiers might pray to Dionysus, god of revelry. The statue group above represents the Graces, or Charities, three sister goddesses who presided over the pleasurable and positive aspects of society. These goddesses sponsored creativity, dance, festivals and fertility. I imagine their worshipers were very positive, friendly people.
