For Mark Lee a.k.a Markie: Athena Goddess

The Parthenon is the centerpiece of Centennial Park on West End. Inside is a 42' statue of Athena. Both the building and statue are exact replicas of the ones that stand in ancient Greece.

The Parthenon also serves as the City of Nashville's Art Museum.

Centennial Park is located just off West End....down the street from Vanderbilt University.

Athena resides in the Parthenon – Nashville, TN. A replica of the Greek goddess Athena, holding the goddess Nike, the goddess of victory in her right hand. Sculpted by Alan Lequire, Athena is 42’ tall and is the tallest indoor sculpture in the western hemisphere. The sculpture was completed in 1990 but the gilding was not done until 2002. We are proud to be part of the gilding team for Athena. Gilded in 23.75 karat gold is as close as historians & archaeologists believe she originally appeared. The relief at the base of the sculpture depicts the different Egyptian gods of mythology, and are also gilded in 23.75 karat leaf.
