ATHENA IN PRAIANO COLOUR WITH MAUVE LENSES
Athena, the goddess of wisdom and military victory, and also the patron of the city of Athens, Argos, Sparta, Gortyn, Lindos, and Larisa.
Athena was a fierce and ruthless warrior, however, was also praised for her compassion and generosity and was a patron of the arts and crafts. Her parents were Zeus and Metis, a nymph. Zeus heard a prophecy that the child Metis bore after she gave birth to Athena would become the lord of heaven, so, to prevent this from happening, he swallowed Metis while she was still pregnant with Athena. When the time came for Athena to be born, the smith god, Hephaistos, opened Zeus' head with an axe, and Athena stepped out, in full armour. The birth of Athena was a favourite topic of Greek vase painters.
Athena in ENKI's trademark striped Praiano colour took its name from the old fishing village of the legendary Amalfi coast of Italy.
