I am Athena, the goddess of wisdom. Of all animals the one I love most is the owl. I like to help people, but I prefer to help those that help themselves rather than expect everything on a silver platter. I am a first-rate warrior but I also love the arts and letters. Weaving is also one my favourite pastimes. My weaving work is the best in the world, better even than that foolish girl’s, Arachne, whom I was forced to compete with. The series Tales from Greek Mythology offers a new reading of the ancient Greek myths. They are not old, worn-out stories, but gripping tales of timeless human adventures, containing all the fears and joys that have marked and continue to mark the human soul.
