Greek Goddess Athena
1. Semester; Art & costume history class
Athena, also referred to as Athene, is a very important goddess of many things. She is goddess of wisdom, courage, inspiration, civilization, law and justice, strategic warfare, mathematics, strength, strategy, the arts, crafts, and skill. She’s known as the wisest, most courageous, and certainly the most resourceful of the Olympian gods. She is namesake of the Greek city of Athens. I’m impressed and inspired by her story and myths.
The whole outfit is handcrafted, with a lot of effort and attention to detail. Many hours of careful work have gone into this historical costume.
