Description
Come, weave us a scheme so I can pay them back! Stand beside me, Athena, fire me with daring, fierce as the day we ripped Troy's glittering crown of towers down. Stand by me - furious now as then, my bright-eyed one - and I would fight three hundred men, great goddess, with you to brace me, comrade-in-arms in battle!' – Homer

Crafted in ceramic, the design this Athenian Owl Statue is based on 7th century originals. Associated with Athena, goddess of wisdom, the owl became a popular motif in Greek art. Dating from c. 640BC, a terracotta owl aryballos, a perfume holder is held in the Louvre.
