MUSES
Also known as MOUSAI

Godly sisters in charge of the Arts and Sciences

Born of ZEUS and MNEMOSYNE, they inspire poets, musicians, writers, philosophers and website designers.

The world would be a far poorer place without CALLIOPE, CLIO, ERATO, EUTERPE, MELPOMENE, POLYHYMNIA, TERPSICHORE, THALIA and URANIA, so give them a call and see what they can do for you.

Their sublime choir is conducted by APOLLO, who ensures they perform everything in perfect blissful harmony. We can only assume he was on vacation when Country & Western music was invented.

We are often asked about merchandise. Can we supply the latest Muses graphic novel, book or comic? Not to mention role-playing games (RPG), video games, Muses movies on DVD, BluRay and so on. To purchase such goodies we suggest you search for a dedicated mythology-based online store - or try Amazon, Ebay or other reputable websites. We offer a wide range of our own merchandise in our online GodShop, but we don't currently sell third party items. Yet!

Visitors often email us asking about Muses statues, sculptures or carved figurines of Muses. We regret we cannot assist with identifying such items.
