Athena. Mentor of Spiritual Quests.

This image by Pheidias, 30 feet tall, was enshrined in the Parthenon of her holy city, where she was worshipped as the giver of civilization and wisdom. Her patriarchal overlay as daughter of Zeus belies her more ancient North African roots as An-Ath, Mistress of All the Gods. In this Neolithic form she wore a goatskin aegis (apron) decorated with phallic serpents. Virgin Athena inherited these powers, incorporated in Gorgon  Medusa (the Libyan Amazon serpent goddess) whose face embosses her shield. Athena's attributes are self-confidence, courage, strength, intelligence judiciousness and fairness. 9" Hand painted.
