Mythology Project: Athena Picture

Athena, Greek Goddess of Wisdom, Logic, and Strategic warfare.
The snowy owl and the Olive tree were sacred to her.

When it came to depicting Athena I wanted to tap into the sophisticated and intelligent businesswoman image she would seem to host in a modern society today.
Athena was the goddess of strategic warfare, so I thought it likely that in this time, she would be involved in politics, and thus a professional, practical woman.
I have given her glasses, as they are commonly associated with intelligence. Same too with the books she holds.
To further emphasise her practicality I have tied her hair back sensibly, however at the same time she presents herself in a neat, sophisticated manner appropriate to her post and her confidence.

The olive tree and snowy owl are both sacred to her, so I have placed them onto the books in her lap, and the shield behind her represents both her relationship with logical, practised warfare and her strength.
