I have an account with deviantart, and I also admire works that are truly interesting and enchanting.

As of now, let’s start the list with Athena, the Greek Goddess of wisdom, craft and war. She is Zeus‘ favorite daughter. Myth has it that when Zeus hears the prophecy that if a child will be born from his union with Metis, this child will become more powerful than he, so he thought of a way to deal with this. Afraid of the prophecy to happen, Zeus swallowed the pregnant Metis. Though swallowed, she still conceived her child and made an armor and weapon for her. When the child is “ready to be delivered”, Zeus experienced a “headache” so painful he asked to have his head split open. After doing so, with a loud voice, Goddess Athena sprang from his head, fully-grown, with her armor and weapon.

Below you can see some of the finest illustrations of Athena from DeviantArt. Credits are given to the artists who made this. You can also visit their profile to admire their other artworks. Enjoy browsing! 🙂
