“Athena” is the classical goddess, not only of War but also of Wisdom.
A modern Athena, just returned from Battle with the enemies of America,
helmet held protecting her heart, looks heavenward in Prayer.
She symbolizes the feminine “prudence” to war.
It begs the enigmatic question of what is her Prayer – the
answer to be supplied by the viewer, as a catharsis for helping to heal
the individual, and very personal, “wounds of war.” This is a tribute
to all the women who have served in America’s Armed Forces.
