Athena, the daughter of Zeus and Metis; she sprung fully grown out of her father's head. She is a warrior who defends the State and the native land against the enemies coming from outside. 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 the birth consecrated to her.
Athena is the Goddess of:
- The Night
- The Arts
- Law & Justice
- Just Warfare
Bestiary Pendants are made of Zinc Alloy, and some are accented with crystals as shown here in the Owl photo. Each includes a chain and is secured in a satin pouch with an info card of the pendant's meaning. Each measures approximately 1 3/4 inches.
