Like all of the Gods and Godesses, Athena still lives.  However, now longer worshipped and glorified, she is left to roam the remains of the temples once erected in her honour.  Still clutching the olive branch she gifted to the Athenians all those years before, she is lonely and confused... lost in the ruins...

have you got a ’thing’ with greece?
the background is overwhelming, you’ve put so much work in it..
- btw, that one hair, across her eye, makes het an awful lot sexier!
how díd you know?

:-) Richard Zachmann replies: "Thank you!! Yes, always loved ancient Greece and Rome. And this whole series leaves no blank paper... every square millimeter has graphite or charcoal on it!!
As for the sexy hair hanging down... I have been around a long time, Dear... LOVE how that looks!! Thanks again!!"

She need not be lonely or confused. There are many even in this day and age who own her to be their Lady.

:-) Richard Zachmann replies: "I suppose you are right!! Thanks for the comment!!"

Great work on the artifacts in this piece. They are actually drawing my eyes away from the goddess, which, I believe, was the whole point. Well done. Great work, and thanks for sharing with us.

:-) Richard Zachmann replies: "Thank you Sir!! And thank you for "getting the point"... although the major concept is people in general getting too "into" things and getting lost... Glad you enjoyed!!"
