Intaglio // Athena (Blue)
The armed warrior Goddess.
In Greek religion, Athena is the city protectress, goddess of war, handicraft, and practical reason, identified by the Romans with Minerva. She symbolises wisdom and courage. In wars—where she was most commonly depicted—Athena embodied cold rationality, tactics, and strategy. Her major symbols include owls, olive trees, snakes, and the Gorgoneion. In art, she is generally depicted wearing a helmet and holding a spear.
