Originally created in 1804 at Montenero in 1816 Thorvaldsen made modifications to the heads of Apollo and Thalia and added a swan to the foreground. This piece was purchased by the Baron von Schubat for his villa at Montenero and can now be seen in the Thorvaldsen Museum in Copenhagen. Depicted in the relief is Apollo seated on a rock, playing the harp, with the nine muses dancing around the Three Graces.
