Owl Goddess Statue - Athena
The Owl Goddess stands before you with arms above and a delicately, detailed carved Owl and Goddess Athena on the body. This statue represents the subtle power and love of the great Goddess Athena.
Daughter of Zeus and Metis, Athena had sprung fully grown out of her father's head. She is a warrior who defends the weak and helpless. Athena is, above all, the Goddess of the City, the protectress of civilized life, of artesian activities, and of agriculture. In poetry she is the incarnation of Wisdom, Reason and Purity. Athens is her city; the olive tree, created by her, is her tree; the owl, is consecrated to her.
Each statue has a natural earth tone finish and is made from natural gypsum cement that contains no harmful chemicals. She measures approximately 5 1/2 inches tall. A lovely addition to any decor and a great gift!
