    The Muses were brought to life to make the world disremember the evil and relieve the sorrows and to praise the gods, and especially the Olympian Gods' victory over their ancestors, the Titans. Women today are searching for meaning, passion and inspiration. We devote ourselves to a spiritual path, become politically active, or immerse ourselves in our chosen art or career. we question the purpose of our lives, and seek another inner or outer means of experiencing substance and joy if we never become attuned to our deepest sources of fulfillment, and learn to replenish ourselves by evoking our inner Muse or Muses. Each of us has at least one personal Muse, perhaps as many as the legendary nine, or more.
    Muses are the patrons of the arts. Art in ancient Greece has influenced on the culture of many countries from ancient times until the present, particularly in sculpture and architecture. In the West, the art of the Roman Empire was largely derived from Greek models. In the East, Alexander the Great's conquests initiated several centuries of exchange between Greek, Central Asian and Indian cultures, resulting in Greco-Buddhist art, with ramifications as far as Japan. Following the Renaissance in Europe, the humanist aesthetic and the high technical standards of Greek art inspired generations of European artists. Into the 19th century, the classical tradition derived from Greece dominated the art of the western world.

    God of War
    Ares is the god of many things, including warfare, violence, manliness, civil order, city defense, and war booty.
    He is mainly known as the god of war, however, blood lust or slaughter better suits him.
    Although Athena is the god of war as well, she is more about strategic warfare. Ares is about unpredictable violence.

    Origin
    Ares is one of the few legitimate children of Zeus and Hera. When he was born, both Zeus and Hera shunned him. In fact, he is one of the most hated Olympians because of his rage and violent tendencies. He now dwells in the island of Thrace, known for its warlike people.

    Symbols
    Ares' symbols include things associated with warfare. Symbols such as the spear, helmet, shield, armor, and chariot. Actually, his personal chariot was drawn by four gold-bridled, fire-emitting, immortal stallions. Some of his other symbols are animals such as the serpent, wild dog, red or roan horses, and vulture. Other symbols include the Planet Mars, Tuesday, the color red, and the Areopagus. {http://monroelab.net/blog/wp-content/uploads/2007/02/zeus-on-chariot.jpg} Ares' Chariot {http://media.comicvine.com/uploads/3/33094/654421-ares_spear_super.jpg} Spear and Shield {http://www.grisel.net/images/greece/Acropolis22.JPG} Aeropagus (Hill of Ares)

    When Poseidon's son, Hallirhothios, raped Alkippe, Ares' daughter, Ares promptly slew him. He was accused of murder and was part of the first ever murder trial in history. He was tried at Areopagus, a hill near the Acropolis.

    Fun Fact: In another myth, the muses were in a singing contest with the Sirens (beautiful women with the bodies of birds) and won once again. The muses punished the Sirens by plucking out their feathers. The Sirens were persuaded into the contest by Hera, who banished them to a deserted island. They are known to sing to bring seamen into their bay, where they would devour them when they landed on the island. Hey, they had to eat something!

    There was a time when the Muses were the goddesses of inspiring springs. Then they became the representatives of poetry, the arts and science and sources of inspiration.From their name words such as music, museum, mosaic are derived. Homer refers to them as one Muse and as many Muses, living on Olympus. Hesiod refers to them as 9 daughters of Zeus and Mnemosyne, who were born in Pieria. Calliope, Muse of epic song, Clio, Muse of history, Euterpe, Muse of lyric song, Thalia, Muse of comedy and bucolic poetry, Melpomene, Muse of tragedy, Terpsichore, Muse of dance, Erato, Muse of erotic poetry Polyhymnia, Muse of sacred song, and Urania, Muse of astronomy. Apollo were the muses brother and their parents were Zeus and Mnemosyne, the first muse and goddess of memory. She produced nine muses from sleeping with Zeus for nine nights. The Muses sat near the throne of Zeus, and sang of his greatness and of the origin of the world and its inhabitants and the glorious deeds of the great heroes.
    The Muses were brought to life to make the world disremember the evil and relieve the sorrows and to praise the gods, and especially the Olympian Gods' victory over their ancestors, the Titans. Women today are searching for meaning, passion and inspiration. We devote ourselves to a spiritual path, become politically active, or immerse ourselves in our chosen art or career. we question the purpose of our lives, and seek another inner or outer means of experiencing substance and joy if we never become attuned to our deepest sources of fulfillment, and learn to replenish ourselves by evoking our inner Muse or Muses.
