Athena, the Divine Strategist PL2023-209
Athena or Athene, is an anceint greek goddess associated with wisdom, warfare, and handicraft] who was later recreated with the Roman godess Minerva. Athena was regarded as the patron and protectress of various cities across Greece, particularly the city of Athens, from which she most likely received her name. The Parthenon on the Acropolis of Athens is dedicated to her. Her major symbols include owls, olive trees, snakes, and the Gorgoneion. In art, she is generally depicted wearing a helmet and holding a spear.
I love this set, simple and easy. Only issues is the coils of snakes for the arms and leg are soft plastic and don't hold their shape well. But those sandled feet are fantastic for standing and are really tight making posing easy! If I find them being sold separetly I will score some for my Elves!
Metis was a Titaness and a Greek goddess of wisdom, prudence, and deep thought. She was known for her intelligence and cunning nature and was often associated with wisdom, smart advice, and strategic planning. As a goddess of wisdom, she embodied the concept of using intelligence and careful planning to navigate difficult situations.
This set was over all another easy one but a few more pains. The belt had to be opened to the max and worked up then tightened. The snaps on the cape are triky and the ankles are not as tight as I like. So she fell over a few times but over all held a pose. I also would have preferd a round sheild.
Stands normal fall into two groups, accesorries or useless circle. Although these two separatly are not much I found that combined they make a cool background peice!
Thanks for stopping in!
