Athena

"Athena" by Todd Powelson

New #artwork, called #Athena.

For some reason, Athena has been showing up over the last year or so. It may have started because I’ve been revisiting #Greek #mythology, stories and philosophy lately. A lot of that reading seemed to be somehow related to the #Iliad & Oddessy, where #PallasAthena plays a huge role.

For whatever reason, #Ergane Athena got into my head and took hold of my #imagination. The thought of her kept growing and growing in my mind, and I started sketching and drawing her all the time. I had two images of Athena that I wanted to develop further, and here she is, reborn (for me) for the first time in this #art (I’ll share the second piece once that is done. Let me tell ya, working on two images of Athena at the same time really puts you in a weird head-space). In the ancient world, Athena was recognized as the #goddess of #civilization. She was also seen as the goddess of #wisdom, #arts and #craft, #inspiration and #creativity, #strategy, #skill, #strength, and #justice. Many of the things I admire.
