Melpomene: Muse of Tragedy

Invoke Melpomene

This is Muse as Lost Mother, goddess of mourning and melancholy. She’s also got to be the muse of show-biz; big time!

‘The Songstress’ wears a tragic mask. Her sorrowful chanting leads some sources to say she was mother of the sirens; half woman, half bird (the wrong halves) who lured sailors to their deaths by singing.
