The muses

Erato, the Muse of Poetry

Clio, the Muse of History

Polyhymnia, muse of Dance

The muses tend to show up in museums now and then, just when you least expect them. They are unfortunately very difficult to recognize as there's a number of them (not even the ancient Greeks and Romans them self could decide upon how many) and their attributes can be very discrete.
