Athena by Ninidu Athena by Ninidu

Athenaby Ninidu

Scraps©2010-2014 Ninidu
Athena was the goddess of wisdom and protector of the arts.

According to the myth she was born by Zeus' head from where she jumped grown up and fully armed.
She was also the protector of the warriors who where heroes at battle-as opposite to her brother Aris who liked violence alone.

She was the protector of the city of Athens who was named after her and whose citizents built the Parthenon to worship her.

I dressed her in green because her sacred plant was the olive tree. I also gave her blue eyes because Homer describes her so.

I'm surprised I haven't seen this before! She's beautifully stoic and like a dominant leader! So pretty! You've made all of my favorite, three A goddesses! Athena, Aphrodite (or Afrodite...seems like a black American woman from the 1970's with an afro hairstyle spelled that way, though :lol:), and Artemis, my favorite, favorite!

McGonagall was perfectly named after her!
