A very refreshing take on Athena, showing the side that is the Goddess of Wisdom primarily. While yes, she is a Warrior Goddess as well, focusing on both civil purity and the law, it's nice to see her in a more scholarly manner.

And of course, can't forget the dominion over owls La la la la 

Excellent work!

Great composition and sense of depth, love the colors, and the details on her dress, on the table, etc. that really add so much character to the overall work.

She remind me more of her Roman aspect Minerva than Athena.

Well, to the Romans Minerva was their equivalent for her. However, Athena was primarily a Goddess of Wisdom and Law. Her warrior attributes come from her father Zeus and those spread into her duty to protect cities and it's justice systems, but she was born from her father's brain so to speak, not conventionally birthed from a woman's flesh. If really, anything, this Athena is a bit more true to form, but there's not much separation that goes on between her lawful and her warrior side. They're entwined, but it is nice to see depictions of mainly her Wisdom side.
