I liked this definition better: a person or personified force who is the source of inspiration for a creative artist. This must be what the Yoruba people call Osun. A personified force! That is what African stories are full of the personification of inanimate objects. We often find many ideas that the Classical Europeans came up with were really appropriated from African cultures and I strongly believe that this is one of those borrowed ideas.
If there are numerous paintings and drawings of Olga, who served as Picasso's muse for many years, then we must have had our own muses that survived in pictures somewhere, but history has failed to say so.
I decided on several kinds of muses. Some of them are taken from the ideas in the book - "The Women Who Fly", while others were taken from the long haired ladies of the book - "Scrap Easy." They are all feisty with a lot of energy to give. Each little quilt has it's own detailed applique, special embellishment and it's own personality.
No two are identical, because they are meticulously hand crafted in order to be the source of inspiration for all your endeavors.Let me know the one that you want at email@example.com
