Athena Statue, Antwerp

When visiting a new place, visitors tend to explore in order to identify the culture, religion, history or this new place. It is interesting how many destinations around the world display Greek themes statues, inspired by Ancient Greek culture, religion, history, myths and legends. 

Such is the case with Antwerp, in Belgium, where one finds a statue of Goddess Athena, along the River Scheldt. Goddess Athena, being the patron of Athens, daughter of Zeus, Goddess of Wisdom, is a symbol found in many places, such as York (North England), as seen through a previous post on this blog.[1]
