    “Muse” is the manifestation of inspiration. The artist is a conduit to something universal, to a collective unconscious insight that reflects culture, society and subjectivity simultaneously; yet the artist needs a focus, a revelation. In ancient Greece, the Muses were the personification of knowledge and of the arts; and the invocation of the Muse was an indication that the artist was reaching beyond him or herself for divine illumination. In this way, the artist transcends ego and expectation; but the Muse is the cue to initiate this rite of expression.
