Athena - Goddess of Wisdom, Government, the Crafts, and Wise Counsel in War, and patron goddess of Athens. This painting uniquely portrays the virgin goddess as a mature woman of a stature and physique that are appropriate for a warrior.
Athena is the Greek goddess of wisdom and strategical war. She is the daughter of Zeus & Metis. Most people claim her to be motherless because, due to a prophecy, Zeus ate Metis and thus Athena was born from his forehead, motherless.
