Terpchicore Picture

Terpchicore - the muse of choral dance

From [link]

Terpsichore was one of the nine Mousai, the goddesses of music, song and dance. In late classical times--when the Muses were assigned specific literary and artistic spheres--Terpsikhore was named Muse of choral song and dancing, and represented with a plectrum and lyre.

She was a daughter of Zeus & Mnemosyne.

Here Terpchicore is dancing away in the portico of the Mousai palace The Parnassos. Swift, elegant and agile, everyone who sees her must stop admire, although she's just practising. I guess she didn't carry around the lyre and it's plectrum when she was spinning around. It seemed more fit to give her a lighter instrument, a tambourine, for her dancing beat. The rest of the music comes from the boom box.
