FYROM – Extreme Paranoia and ridiculous “Antiquization” are alive and kicking in the Former Yugoslav Republic.
The Latest news mention that FYROM after erecting statues of historical Greek personas like Alexander the Great, Philip II, Aristotle, Cyril & Methodius, now is ready to honour personas from Greek Mythology.
In fact, FYROM, a country where its Slavic element is ridiculously indoctrinated to believe it has an imaginary link with the ancient Greek kingdom of Macedonia, is likely to erect Sculptures of the 9 Muses, according to plusinfo.mk.

The financial report for the period from January 1 to June 30 that who came to Plusinfo from Municipality of Centre, for the first installment of making a model of lion sculptures, the author Miroslav Slavković was paid by it 392,139 denars, or around 6,500 euros. In that period, the same amount was given to Bogoja Anѓelkovski, Ibrahim Bedi and Žarko Baševski who are the authors of the sculptures of the muses.

The Municipality of Centar is paying for the development of models made by the muses stages of their manufacture. For casting in bronze of the sculptures of the nine muses and two lions, it signed a contract with “RŽ Institute” AD, worth about 350,000 euros. But it is not known whether the amount of making models is paid or the Municipality will give more installments to pay the four authors involved in this project.
As it is already known, in charge of construction of the building construction company will be “Beton”, which needs to raise an ancient colonnade of 880,000 euros.
According to architectural literature, a series of colonnade of columns connected by beams, which can stand free or be part of another object, while the characteristic Greek agora were built around that long open porch, ground floor or the floor and used for public gatherings and trade.
For most of the characters that will be shown on the sculptures, which are forgotten or unknown to the wider audience, here’s a brief lesson on Ancient Greek mythology.
Kaliopi is most precious among the muses and muse of epic poetry.
Clio is the muse of history and is represented by a plate and pen.
Melpomene is the muse of tragedy. The picture is of an appropriate mask in hand.
Euterpe is the muse of lyric poetry, painted with a flute in her hands.
Era is the muse of love and erotic poetry (and the name is derived from the name of the god Eros).
Terpsichore the muse of the game, and sometimes indulges her role as educator of youth.
Urania is the muse of astronomy and astrology.
Thalia is the muse of inspiration for writers of comedy and also wears a mask in her hands.
Polyhymnia is muse of the songs and the geometry.
According to one version, the muses are daughters of Zeus and Mnemosyne. Zeus came in the marital bed with Mnemosyne nine nights in a row and that in time gave birth to nine daughters.
