Description
“Maid and Owl Helmet” is the stunning portrayal of a young, beautiful woman and ancient, mythological symbolism. The artist's soft delicate rendering of the woman emphasizes an inner peace and serenity, while her dramatic avian helmet brings to mind other inherent qualities, buried deep within ancient symbolism. The majestic and haunting owl image atop the woman's head hearkens us back to ancient Greek mythology, as we are reminded of the deity Athena, the great goddess of wisdom--for one of Athena’s attributes was, in fact, this wise old nocturnal animal. Just as Athena was portrayed as a helmeted goddess, so this captivating woman appears before us, her extraordinary helmet and ethereal face compelling us to seek the age-old wisdom of the gods of the distant past. - (ES.014)
