Ancient Greece I Love Greece Parthenon Sweatshirt Style D647

The Greek Parthenon is the structure that dominates the rock of Acropolis. It was built during the Golden Age of Athens under the rule of Perecles. Its architect, Iktinos, used the Doric architectural style and the achieved an extraordinary and unequalled harmony. The mathematical principles of the Parthenon are still taught today as an exemplar of perfection in all architectural schools. Iktinos used curvatures to correct the optical illusions that the imperfect eyesight of the human eye sees. Not a straight line exists in the entire structure with the sophisticated system of curvatures giving a sense of life as well as beauty. It is this which makes the Parthenon one of the architectural wonders of the world.
During its glory, housed inside the Parthenon was the massive statue of Athena made of gold and ivory as a dedication to the patroness and goddess of the city of Athens . This statue was considered on of the seven wonders of the world. The Parthenon is a temple dedicated to this goddess and, although her statue no longer exists her temple remains.
 

This makes a great gift to show your Greek pride. It is printed on a 100% cotton sweatshirt.
