The Enigma of Athena
The Enigma of Athena
Oil on canvas, 1992 75cm x 100cm (30" x 40")

Artist's Interpretation:

Springing from Zeus' head in full armour, the Virgin Athena, goddess of wisdom and protectress of rulers and heroes, true guardian of the Arts, beloved deity of the citizens of Athens and Rome, stands alone on the landscape of the mind as the precursor of every modern woman, before crossing the threshold of time and beyond time (aqueduct-column) when we all were one with eternity.

In all her humanity (running woman, running man) and spirituality (bird) this enigmatic warrior fights her battles, oblivious of danger (shadow protruding into the visual plane just above the column and eaves receding into the hills), with the engaging sagacity of a beautiful and seductive logician.
