My Muse, Erato

Introducing my muse: Erato, muse of erotic and love poetry.

Her wikipedia page can be found here.

Now, I don't mean to be ungrateful to her, but I swear in this painting she looks positively hermaphroditic. I sincerely hope the artist was cursed by one of Erato's sisters... or, perhaps there is a story in that. Hated by the other muses, outcast and alone, Erato dreams and inspires what she herself cannot find.

Interesting idea?
