Description of the artwork «The sacred wood, cherished by the arts and the muses»

The idea is to show the inseparable connection of arts and Sciences. In the center of the composition – allegorical figures: Painting, Architecture, Sculpture. Next to them are the muses: Polyhymnia (Muse of the solemn hymns), Clio (Muse of history), calliope (Muse of epic poetry, science and philosophy). On the shore there are Thalia (the Muse of Comedy and light poetry) and Terpsichore (Muse of dance). In the air froze Euterpe (Muse of lyric poetry and music) and Erato (Muse of love songs. Near the lake, thinking I sit motionless Melpomene (Muse of tragedy) and Urania (Muse of astronomy). In this idyllic landscape filled with silence and peace: Ministry of the muses does not tolerate vanity.
