Athena battling Alkyoneos Fitted

This detail from the gigantomachy frieze shows Athena grabbing the hair of the giant Alkyoneos as Nike flies to crown her, and is a quotation from the Athena on the Parthenon’s east pediment. This was painted on a custom fitted donning a fist holding a thunderbolt symbolizing Zeus and Athena and the power they weild. Since Athena was born by springing forth from Zeus' forehead after he swallowed her pregnant mother, it was only fitting we put a painting of this sculpture on a fitted... Painted by Sam... with the Hair as a final project in her Art History class... See, we REALLY do this art thing around here.
