  Athena Pallas Bust Statue19" High
Statue of Athena Pallas Bust
Athena Pallas Bust Statue19" High


This bust of Pallas Athena was reproduced from a sculpture found on the island of Crete.  The original is believed to have been made of Parian marble and to have been carved by Cephisodote at the beginning of the fourth century BC. Athens bore Athena's name because her father Zeus decreed it so. The prize was awarded to Pallas Athena because of her superior wisdom and Athena created the olive tree which became the symbol of peace and the source of prosperity. The Parthenon erected on The Acropolis at Athens was dedicated to her. Pallas Athena image in the form of a statue forty-two feet high stood within that temple. This gigantic statue, fashioned by Phidias, was completely faced with ivory and gold. Each year all Athenians joined a lengthy procession which proceeded to The Acropolis to honor their beloved goddess Athena. Pallas Athena has a Roman counter part called Minerva. Our wooden bases are select pieces of locally grown and crafted wood. Far less energy is expended to convert our bases from tree to finished product. Many of our trees come from yards as a result of storm damage - really, it's a good thing.
