Goddess Athena Drawing

This drawing of the goddess is done on paper with wood-less graphite pencils. I also wrote a poem to celebrate Athena in the background. Athena is a complex divinity, there are many variations of her myths. I based this depiction on a copy of a sculpture of Athena from ancient Greece that I saw at the museum there. She is holding the Goddess of Victory in her right hand, and is supporting her shield. You can see her serpent behind the shield.
My research confirmed that her worship dated well beyond ancient Greece, into prehistoric times when she was the Mother Goddess.
Her temple in Athens, The Parthenon, is considered to be the perfect example Greek architecture.
She is an archetype of a woman of power and creativity; thus, appeals to many women world wide.
