One of my all time favorite paintings from Gustav Klimt

Gustav Klimt / Public domain

Pallas Athene 

I love the way the gold color scheme gives her this sense of power.  Her gold eyes also has this raw, mystical appearance befitting a warrior goddess.  Almost as though she will jump out and kill you if you insult her.  Klimt made a wonderful tribute to this divine woman.

ETA 6-5-2015: I decided to delete my previous mistakes and attempted fixes.
