Birth of Athena by Erez Natanblut
Oil on canvas, 14 by 20 inches
Even Heaven was thunderstruck,
when Hephaestus wielded the axe
and split open Zeus’ head.
Cries of agony, skull crushed yet immediately restored,
a miraculous happening, a Goddess born
and fully armed with shield and spear,
torpedoing like lightning out of the head of Zeus,
while all the Gods and Goddesses trembled
with awe and fear.
