The source of creativity has been a mystery since earliest times. The ancients attributed the miracle of inspiration to a divine source, namely the nine muses (daughters of Zeus, the god of thunder and lightening, and Mnemosyne, the goddess of memory), who presided over song and the different types of poetry, as well as the arts and sciences.

This head of Thalia, the muse of comedy and pastoral poetry, is a reproduction of a 2nd-century Roman original that resembles Greek models of the late 4th to early 3rd century B.C. indicating Roman dependence on Greek originals. (PN 6482)
