Athena, goddess of war, wisdom, and justice, was the child of Zeus. Typically, she is represented in a more scholarly light, as she favors those who are thoughtful, but in this Athena – Goddess of Wisdom and War Statue, she is seen as a warrior, and indeed, Athena was reported to be as much a warrior as her half-brother, Ares, with whom she fought constantly to be seen as a sole deity of war. Unlike Ares, though, who represented physical might, power, and bloodlust, Athena represented war in terms of skill and strategy. Here, she is depicted as a warrior woman dressed in Greek armor, including a breastplate with skirt tassets and a plumed helmet, while her godly cape billows behind her in the wind. In one hand, she holds a spear, the Greek warriors weapon of choice, while the other holds the Aegis shield, which bears the legendary face of Medusa. The goddess stands atop an unadorned base that features only a placard that features her name. This impressive statue is crafted entirely from cold cast bronze, which is a variation of cold cast resin that is mixed with powdered bronze to give the statue a bit more weight and a more metallic look and feel. It is also hand painted, to better enhance its metallic luster and finish. This mythological statue stands approximately 10.25 inches tall. Anyone who favors brain over brawn is sure to find favor with Athena, just as anyone who loves Greek mythology is likely to enjoy this Athena – Goddess of Wisdom and War Statue, whether they are viewing it in anothers home or receiving it as a delightful gift.
