La muse s'appelle . . .
Persephone - "Percy" for short. For many reasons - which Wikipedia lays out much more concisely than I ever will.
Here's my favorite reason to call her this: Plato calls her Pherepapha (Φερέπαφα) in his Cratylus, "because she is wise and touches that which is in motion".
Thanks again for all your suggestions!
Here's the embossing I created for the winner of the drawing, Renee. The actual figuring in the peice is probably no more than two inches wide, which made her face a bit of a challenge - it's only a few sixteenths of an inch! Overall size is about 3"x4".
