A mural painted by Giusi Tomasello called Athena situated half way along Park Street and part of the Arts Quarter (St. Georges Walk) one of the more illustrative murals and incredibly striking. It stands out amongst the hoarding found all the way along this stretch of road which features many of the larger murals.
Giusi has been very clever with her choice of character because Minerva (Minerva plc are the owners of the shops) is the Roman goddess identified with Athena.
The goddess of wisdom, courage, inspiration, civilization, law & justice, mathematics, strength, war strategy, the arts, crafts and skill in ancient Greek religion and mythology.
This was one of the murals vandalised and had to be repaired (luckily not replaced – as many were) by Tomasello.
