Muses Triptych II
Calliope, Clio, and Melpomene (left to right) are the muses of justice, history, and tragedy. The Nine Muses of Greek mythology are the inspirational goddesses of the arts. When we see New Orleans as these muses, her strong traditions and constant transformations are illuminated. Melpomene, muse of tragedy, means 'to sing', and Clio means 'heroic acts' while Calliope is 'wisdom'
