The Graiai (Graeae) were ancient sea-daimones (spirits) who personified the white foam of the sea. They were grey from birth, and shared among themselves a single detatchable eye and tooth.

This is misidentified many places on PInterest as being "After Antea" by the painter Parmigianino (1503-1540), PAINTED in 1503.
