– Goddess of wisdom & war
In greek mythology, Athena was born from the forehead of Zeus fully grown and wearing armor. She is the protector of civilized life and goddess of courage and justice.
Here Athena confronts the viewer, prepared to defend the last remaining olive tree on Earth. The olive tree represents the final chance for peace between humans and the natural world they inhabit. With Athena as its valiant protector, hope is not lost for nature’s salvation and eventual restoration.
Athena is accompanied by the wisdom and strategical thinking of the owl who is with her at all times, guiding her choices in battle.
