Glorious Parthenon, Temple of Athena

The Parthenon is the temple of Athena, Goddess of Wisdom. Built between 447-432 B.C. by the architect Fidias, it has been universally admired through the ages for its harmony and beauty.

I will offer this traditional-style embroidery of the Parthenon to the fellow government of Lebanon in commemoration of the innocent victims of that afflicted country in summer 2006.

First this embroidery will be displayed in an exhibition at the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing, the People’s Republic of China.
