Renaissance artists, with rekindled interest in classical antiquity, began portraying mythological subjects in addition to traditional Christian themes. There existed a growing interest in the gods and goddesses of old--Bacchus, Apollo, Athena, and the like. Since that time, the triangle (a musical instrument not known to exist in classical antiquity) has been depicted in art alongside musical instruments of the day, in a variety of mythological settings. This Exhibit seeks to share these depictions of the triangle as artists re-imagined the instrument back into mythology, perhaps also giving mythology an upgraded look and feel along the way.
