In this detail of "Bed Hanging with Pegasus and the Nine Muses," circa 1700, the winged horse Pegasus strikes Mount Helicon and causes the Hippocrene spring of poetic inspiration to flow. 💭 Mount Helicon is the home of the nine Muses who are arrayed in individual landscapes.✨ Part of a set of embroidered furnishings for a bedroom, this spectacular textile (it is 12 feet square), features exquisite embroidery portraying Pegasus and the nine muses (Zeus’s nine daughters) who were created to give poetic inspiration to the world. See the full bed hanging in person @toromeandbacklacma, on view now.
