Kleio - The muse of History

From: [link]

KLEIO (or Clio) was one of the nine Mousai (Muses), the goddesses of music, song and dance. Her name was derived from the Greek verb kle˘, "to make famous" or "celebrate." In Classical times--when the Mousai were assigned specific literary and artistic spheres--Kleio was named Muse of history. In this guise she was represented holding an open scroll or seated beside a chest of books.

She was a daughter of Zeus & Mnemosyne.

So Kleio was into books - huh! Then I had better give her a generous library where she could hang out reading all day long if she so should desire. And it wasn't just history she read but a lot of other subjects too, and not to forget a fair chare of novellas. So I also gave her a great chair and a large desk to sit by. A desk where there's room for some stuff to nibble at as well.

awesome render, only thing is I think she would look better looking down at the book, like she is reading it :)

Beautiful work! As always, I love your interpretation of classical figures. I especially love all the books and the pose--I do that when I'm reading too.

Thanks a lot :iconstarblazers: I tend to pose myself that way too too. Or I lie down flat on my belly! I recognize so much from myself in Kleio, I'm a part time book worm too, and I'd probably read A LOT MORE if only time let me :)
