Virgin goddess of war, wisdom and patroness of the arts. Minerva is the daughter of Zeus. A woman who is often misunderstood and misused. She is every girl who fights for what’s right and learns to stand up for herself. She possesses the traits all women need to succeed. She is an armored rose that evolves as a survival tactic.

Symbolism: the roses on this piece of rusted showing age, wisdom and a form of armor. The branches our representative of victories throughout a lifetime.
