A Western World replica
Athena Statue (literally, “Athena the Virgin”) was the title of a massive sculpture of the Greek goddess Athena made by Phidias and housed in the Parthenon in Athens, Greece. A modern replica by Alan LeQuire stands in the reproduction of the Parthenon in Nashville, TN.
Nashville’s Athena Statue stands 41 ft 10 inches tall, making her the largest piece of indoor sculpture in the Western World. The modern version took eight years to complete, and was unveiled to the public on May 20, 1990.
