Where is Muse fromWho is Muse from?
Calliope, the most important (powerful vocal and epical poems and also rhetoric), Clio (glorifying and dramatic story), Erato (beautiful and dramatic singing), Euterpe (soothing and dramatic poetry), There are Melpomene (singing and performing tragedy), Polymnia (many anthems and performing anthems to the deities and heroes), Terpsichore or Stesichore (joy of dance), Thalia (blossoming and performing comedy), Urania (heavenly and performing astronomy).
Some of the items have also been associated with the Muses and help to recognize their special talent. It was thought that the Muses lived on Mount Olympus, where they kept their fathers and other Olympic deities amused with their great craftsmanship, but later also on Mount Helicon in Boeotia, where there was a great ritual center for the deities, or on Mount Parnassus, where the Chestnut fountain was a popular target for writers and artist.
At Olympus, Apollo Mousagetes was in a certain way the Muses' choirmaster, although his connection was not restricted to playing only, as he produced many kids with his group. Calliope, the muse of epoxy poetic, was the dam of Orpheus, the wonderful lyricist whose sire was described by some as Apollo himself.
Though the Muses brought celebration and pleasure, they were not to be despised when it came to the supremacy of their artistry. Though the Muses brought celebration and pleasure, they were not to be despised when it came to the supremacy of their artistry. Pierus' nine girls stupidly tried to competing muses on Mount Helicon and were all turned into fowls because of their insolence.
Thamyres ( "son of the nymph Agriope") was another one to challenge the Muses in the world of art, and after he unavoidably came second to the Deities, was penalized with deafness, the death of his artistic talents and singer. And the Muses also served as a judge in another contest, this one between Apollo on his kitara and the satirist Marsyas, who performed the lotus given to him by Athena.
In his theogony, Hesiod asserted that he was speaking to the Muses on Mount Helicon, and they gave him a lush bay leaf and gave him their heavenly voices so that he could announce the splendour of the deities and their heirs. He also says that the Muses were made to help forget and alleviate problems, perhaps in compensation for her mom who personalized the remember.
The Muses are represented in the arts as pretty young ladies, often with grand pianos. Muses often appear on red and dark figurine ceramics from the fifth and fourth centuries B.C., especially in Apollo' s play of cithara or depictions of the Marsyas and Thamyres mystic. A lot of sculptures of the Muses were found on Delos, an important ritual center for Apollo.
During the fifth millennium B.C., the image of the perfect female icon in Hellenic arts came very much closer to that of a muse. Muses and especially muses often appear as a theme on Lekythoy, the graceful death cases placed in tombs, so that lovers can enjoy their next album.
An acclaimed presentation of the Muses as a group are the three relief marbles from a sculpture basis from the years 325-300 BC, which are now in the National Archaeological Museum of Athens.
