Polyhymnia, meaning “the one of many hymns," was the Muse of sacred poetry, sacred hymns and eloquence. She is usually depicted as being very serious, in meditation and pensive while holding a finger to her mouth and wearing a long cloak or veil which was used to cover her head and implies the traits of a virgin priestess.
My art is textured, often featuring musical scores as a base layer, before painstakingly applying a technique known as pointillism. If you would like more photos or information, please contact me here or via my email address below.
