well actually the God of War is Ares (or Mars if you prefer the Roman version), Athena is in her birth-suit :giggle:

this was one of my first test attempts with my old digital camera. No particular reason other than being out taking photos at the Academy of Athens which is a beautiful building, and Athena being awesome as well ;)

I know. birth-suit? What do you mean, is that cus she sprung right out of Zues' head full grown?
Ah, still a school er whatever? True. Hey, you know the pillar she's standing on. Is it called a herm er herms?

yes, she sprung out of Zeus's head fully grown and fully armed ;)

I think a "herm" is another thing, I'd just call it pillar or column, and the top of it is called chapiter

Ah =D... Chapiter, why is it called that? Hmm, just curious, heard a pillar er something was named after Hermes.

Looks like you photographed it before they decided painting it, my friend, and I got the updated version, eheheh. Nice photo by the way.
