A wonderful Athena Garden Statuette. A well detailed statue of Athena the Goddess of Wisdom. Reduction from the statue of Athena circa 280 B.C. in the Vatican Museum.
"Athena or Athene, is the goddess of wisdom, craft, and war in ancient Greek religion and mythology. In later times, Athena was syncretized with the Roman goddess Minerva. Athena was portrayed as having a calm temperament, and moving slowly to anger. She was believed to only fight for just causes and never fight without a purpose.
In ancient Greek literature, Athena is portrayed as the astute companion of heroes and as the patron goddess of heroic endeavour. She is also the patroness of Athens. The Athenians constructed the Parthenon atop their Acropolis as a temple to Athena; it takes its name from her epithet Parthenos, which means 'Virgin'."
This timeless beauty perfectly matches classical gardens.
