Melpomene Muse of Drama Necklace
Melpomene (mel·POM·en·ee) is known as the ancient muse of tragedy, though her name actually stems from the ancient Greek melpô or melpomai meaning "to celebrate with dance and song." This is because she was originally the muse of the chorus, though later came to be associated with tragedy, in the true sense of Ancient Greek Tragedy - that is, staged dramatic performance.
Melpomene is the muse for those who belong on the stage or screen, who see the beauty in broken things, who can draw silver linings on any cloud. She will help you find truth in pain and wrest meaning from tragedy.
This handcrafted pendant depicts Melpomene in an original etching from 1832, holding her ancient symbols, the dagger and club.
The trademark Common Era raised molten rim frames the pendant, and hangs from a finely-woven Italian-made spiga chain.
