Parthons in Athens,Greece. Built in 438 B.C. in the Classical style

This sculpture is a full body of the Athena Parthenos (virgin), Goddess of Wisdom. This sculpture is 41’ 10” and is made of an aluminum armature and concrete. Athena is white and gold and seems to be holding an angel and a shield. I believe she is holding the shield to protect her virginity while teaching the angel because she is the Goddess of wisdom. I really like this piece. She is very beautiful and nicely made. The only thing I don’t really like is her eyes that look a little buggy and crazy.
