Here is a drawing of Athena, the godess of ancient Athens. She is one of my favorite Greek gods, right up there with Posiedon. This drawing is what I imagine the statue of her looked like 2400 years ago in the Parthenon. I have seen the new Parthenon in Nashville, which although very nice and interesting to see, pales in comparision to the real thing, with the exception that you can get an idea of what the whole thing looked like when new. It is said that she sprang fully grown and armored from the head of Zeus, her father.
