Wisdom and Civilization.

The Parthenon was constructed upon the Acropolis just to house this magnificent, venerable 30-foot-tall image, by Pheidias. Athena's importance was maintained even after warfare had transformed Greek goddess civilization.

Her attributes are self-confidence, power, courage, intelligence and diplomacy. The Romans called her Minerva. The virgin goddess gained the powers of the Gorgon Medusa, whose face is embossed on her shield.

[Athena Varvakeion, Central Museum, Athens; shield detail, British Museum.]

This 13" tall gypsumstone statue features a green verdigris color finish.
