The acropolis is probably the monument we all think about when we hear about Ancient Greece. The architecture style can be found everywhere around the world as a classic reference, the columns, the triangular shape, etc. Many modern government building are made with this style. 

The parthenon was dedicated to Athena, the goddess of wisdom. Athena was worshiped for a long time, and probably still is in certain places or cultural groups. Wisdom can also be understood as "enlightenment". As a contrast to the light of wisdom, I painted a total solar eclipse; a moment of darkness, that even if briefly, can transform anyone who has witness it. 

The sky has an iridescent dark touch to it. I used Daniel Smith primatek mineral watercolor kyanite genuine.
