Athena is the goddess of wisdom, courage, inspiration, civilization, mathematics, olive oil, strength, war strategy, the arts, crafts, and skill in ancient Greek religion and mythology. Minerva is the Roman goddess identified with Athena. Athena is known for her calm temperament, as she moves slowly to anger. She is noted to have only fought for just reasons, and would not fight without a purpose. Athena is portrayed as a shrewd companion of heroes and is the patron goddess of heroic Endeavour. She is the virgin patroness of Athens. The Athenians founded the Parthenon on the Acropolis of her namesake city, Athens (Athena Parthenos), in her honor.

Material and manufacturing process: cast marble
Cast marble statues are made from a composite material in which natural crushed Greek marble stone is mixed with a small amount of resin which acts as a glue. The mixture is then poured into a mold of the design of the statue. Because the powder is so fine, the smallest details can be reproduced using this method. Over 90% of the finished sculpture is natural crushed Greek marble stone, giving it a look and feel of solid natural marble. All sculptures are hand finished to ensure the best quality. This strong material is water and weather resistant, bubble free, will not crack and can be washed with most cleaning agents.
Please note: our statues are not sculpted. The 100% natural marble statues are hand carved and cost a lot of money. Our product offerings are intended to be affordable to the majority audience.
