Muse : The Inspiration

thumbnail

According to Greek mythology, goddesses are the inspiration of literature, science, and the arts. The source of the knowledge embodied in the poetry, song lyrics, and myths are believed to come from female gods.

Hence, started the concept of “Muse”.

Currently, “Muse” is referred to a person who inspires any individual practising an art form. The relationship between an individual and the muse is subjective, and can even be difficult to understand at times. ‘Source of inspiration’ to help in a creative process is just one way of looking at a Muse. For some creative geniuses, the Muse is just a figment of their imagination, they use to concentrate on their creative process.

The use of the muse can also differ basis the Art form. For instance in the world of fashion, many fashion designers choose muses for their body shape, so the muse becomes a literal mannequin.

In some ways this relationship is symbiotic in nature, as creative individuals feed on their muse’s energy.  But this interesting energy dynamics  has been the reason behind some exceptional creative products and partnerships.
