    I apologise in advance that I submit questions for you once again. Already some weeks ago I showed you already here this Micro Mosaic brooch/pendant/locket. See link: http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/65000-rare-very-old-micro-mosaic-brooch-pendan?in=user.
    This brooch was made of the real old kind of Micro Mosaic and there is missing no tessarrea, set in gold over silver (vermeil).
    I'v received many nice responses and I thank you for that. I would like to call in your help to find out what image on this brooch. After much searching (Google images) I found also this Micro Mosaic brooch with depicts an image that resembles a lot with my brooch. On this brooch it says Minerva/Polyhymnia. The last photo a picture of this.You will see some resemblence yourself. Like your help in the solution of my question to the image on my brooch. Maybe there is someone among you who know much about Greek and Roman mythology.Do you think that the image represents the same subject or do you have another idea or suggestion ?

      Kevin, thank you so much for all the effort you have done and your comprehensive reply. And you're right I can distinguish only not so good (and also the former owner does not with me) then what is intended with this image.

      flatkaka, thanks for loving my Micro Mosaic brooch.

      The first figure is a bacchante/maenad carrying a fennel stalk thyrsus & a tambourine. Her companion is Clio, Muse of History.
    6. cameosleuth cameosleuth, 2 years ago
      I should add, her sister Polyhymnia is the Muse of Sacred Music, traditionally shown veiled, pensive, & not carrying anything.

      I can't help you on greek or roman mythology even if I wish I could. Interesting suggestions and information from cameosleuth here! I can imagine a collector of cameos have had a lot of studying into the mythology as they often apear on cameos :)
      I love moth micromosaics, such nice detail and intense yellow. Most wonderful!
