This is a photograph I found in a Photobucket album. It is a close-up of the 41ft (four stories), gilded Athena statue that resides inside Nashville's Parthenon.
In my opinion this is not the most beautiful of sculptures, but it is quite powerful. I was writing a scene in which I described her and thought I'd share a picture with you all. Here are some more from the site I found...
Athena's shield with Medusa's head at the center.
Athena Parthenos, with the winged Nike, goddes of Victory.
