Athena by MargotYvy

Athena by MargotYvy, 2008. First place winner in the RedClub’s Greek Gods Contest.

Artist’s comments:

I wanted to interpret the classic painting of Attic Greek Style, namely that of red figures on a black background (the story of the Red Figure Pottery on Wikipedia).

I chose the Goddess Athena: in Greek mythology, Athena was the goddess of wisdom, weaving, arts and, presumably, of the most noble of war. Its sacred symbols were the Owl and the Olive Tree. (on Wikipedia the history of Athena).

Hope you like it .
