Hand carved Muse Calliope necklace.
Calliope is the Muse of Epic Poetry, and hers was a name invoked by many writers and poets in antiquity; for they would give praise to the Muse for their ability to bring forth words of great eloquence.
The Greek muses were the patron goddesses of the arts of the realms of human spiritual activity, including poetry, art, and the sciences. It was thought that the Muses inspired poets and artists.
Calliope was depicted carrying a writing tablet. She was also said to be the muse who bestowed the gift of eloquence about mortal kings, coming to them when they were a baby, and anointing their lips in honey. As a result of Calliope’s actions, when adults, the anointed ones would spout gracious words, and utter true judgements.
