Polyhymnia 3D Model
The Muse Polyhymnia
Parian marble. Museo Centrale Montemartini, Rome, Italy.
This sculpture depicts the Muse Polyhymnia, leaning on a rock pillar, lost in thought, and clad in her characteristic mantle, pulled tightly around her body.
Polyhymnia was the Muse of sacred poetry and hymn, and is typically shown in a tightly-worn shroud or mantle, often leaning on a column or pillar, but sometimes free-standing, though still pulling her drapery close about her.
Muse Sarcophagus from the Louvre Museum:
Note Polyhymnia at center in her characteristic, nearly identical stance
