This statue depicting Athena was originally placed on a pedestal on the Acropolis of Athens, and was used by the inhabitants to guarantee the protection of the goddess.
Athena in this statue is not depicted as by convention, with the helmet symbol of war, usually worn by patron goddess of heroes, of industrious women and artisans; the goddess has her head uncovered in a peaceful and restful attitude, with a serene expression.
In this representation the goddess gives up the shield and the helmet does not cover her face, her warrior nature gives way to a more human representation.
