Here are Professor Geiger's designs for the "Miners" and "Mowers" stamps of Germany's 1917-23 inflationary period. The first two designs began use in the 1921 "Number, Laborer, Posthorn and Ploughman" definitive series. These two designs were used again in 1922-3 on mark-valued definitives, but the chisel and pick wielding miners on these stamps are shown facing left.

In Slavic mythology, Sudicka ("Fates") are three women spinners that meted out fortune, destiny, judgment and in some cases, fatality, when a child was born. The story has many similarities to the Greek myth of the Moirai.

the legend is about "The Three fates", so I believe it fits this collection. If not, I appreciate if one of the moderators will delete this post.

This June 27, 1966 French one franc stamp (Sc #1150) is from the "Paintings 1966" series. Stamp depicts George de la Tour's (1593-1652) Le Nouveau-ne' (Eng: The New-born) of 1645-8. Painting is in the Museum of Fine Arts, Rennes.

Because of the subject, this painting is often thought of as a Nativity scene.

The three Charites (Roman: Graces), daughters of Zeus and Eurynome, are goddesses of charm, beauty, creativity and fertility. Their names are: Aglaea (Beuty), Euphrosyne (Mirth) and Thalia (Good Cheer). They were responsible for the god meals and created a good atmosphere in celebrations. Usually, they were constant companions of Aphrodite (Venus), goddess of beauty and love.

Here are five stamps show the Three Graces in different paintings:

The Three Graces on 1st century fresco from Pompeii Guinea Equatorial:

The Three Graces, by Hans von Aachen (1552-1615) Romania, 1969:

The Three Graces" by Peter Paul Rubens (1577-1640) Upper Volta, 1977:

The three Graces, painting by Raphael (14831520), issued by Bulgaria on December 28, 1984:

The three Graces, by Battista Naldini (15351591), issued by Hungary on December 10, 1968:

Of course, the most famous painting of the Three Graces is the La Primavera by Botticelli mentioned by jleb1979 in page 3 of this thread with two examples. I will bring more from Botticelli other time.
