- In the ancient world, the graces represented everything that constituted the beauty and attractiveness of life.
- The graces often escorted the winged god, Amour.
- They were invited to the opening of all celebrations in order to bring gentle festivity and quiet harmony to those present.
- The three graces are always depicted embracing each other, and their main goal was to provide people with all that adorns life and makes them happy.
Inevitably, time is moving on. The mythopoetic
background transforms this into a game that
possesses unrivalled vitality and beauty: a top
controlled by an unseen hand and a stranger's
will entertains the viewers. As the spinning of
each top winds down and its spring breaks, the
toy is forgotten and joins other discarded things
off stage. Present on stage is the conciseness
of inspiration, the moment of a successful
performance, time compressed into a single
point like the vortex of a cone.
