Painting - Acrylic On Plaster And Lime
Inspired by the Athena slab from the Pergamon Altar, at the Acropolis, Athens.
From a frieze depicting Zeus and Athena battling three giants, we see the winged giant Alkyoneus, intertwined with a serpent. The hand pulling his hair belongs to Athena. In the frieze, Alkyoneus stretches toward his mother, Gaia (Earth), as he cannot be killed if he sustains contact with her. Athena will triumph, for she bears with a wreath of victory by a Nike.
Giants were born out of drops of blood from the castrated organ of Ouranos (Heavens), which his son, Kronos, performed with a sickle given to him by his mother, Gaia (Earth). Throughout Greek mythology, giants are portrayed as foes of the gods.
