Polyhymnia Muse of Hymns Necklace
Polyhymnia (po·lee·HYM·nee·uh) is the ancient muse of hymns, her very name derived from the ancient greek poly, meaning many, and hymn, meaning praise.. Unmistakable for her contemplative manner, she is known for practicing profound thought and introspection. For this reason, she is also associated with the ancient practice of meditation.
Polyhymnia is the muse for those who seek a quiet solace from the world, the introverts who find gladness and peace in a life of self-discovery. She is the muse for those who believe in a higher power that guides our mortal souls, offering comfort and understanding.
This handcrafted pendant depicts Polyhymnia in an original etching from 1832, wearing the veil that has been associated with her likeness since the Renaissance.
The trademark Common Era raised molten rim frames the pendant, which is suspended from a finely-woven Italian-made spiga chain.
