Kalliope by Hera-of-Stockholm Kalliope by Hera-of-Stockholm
Kalliope - The Muse of epic poetry

FROM [link]

KALLIOPE (or Calliope) was the eldest of the Mousai (Muses), the goddesses of music, song and dance. She was also the goddess of eloquence, who bestowed her gift on kings and princes.

In Classical times--when the Muses were assigned specific artistic spheres--Kalliope was named Muse of epic poetry. In this guise she was portrayed holding a tablet and stylus or a scroll. In older art she holds a lyre.

She was a daughter of Zeus & Mnemosyne.

And here's my interpretation of Kalliope. She traded her tablet and stylus for a laptop and Mircrosoft Office. (She got it as a sacrifice from Mr Gates :D). And she's busy writing something as usual.

Once again I tried for a timeless, slightly romantic feel which I feel fit for a muse.

You know, I'm running out of awesome, witty, and/or clever things to say about your work. As always, I love your interpretation of the classics…and the bit Bill Gates' sacrifice is :heart:. :D That was a nice touch. <3
