This bronze statue, Figure of Athena, is a persuasive piece for what I assume is the assembling of a group of people to fight for something they collectively believe in. The textbook suggests that persuasive art is intended to influence actions or opinions. The use of Athena is important because she is the goddess of war. In this statue, she is holding her hand in a balled fist, which is symbolic of strength and fighting. Her upper body is textured in what appears to represent body armor and she is also wearing a helmet. Her stance and attire are intended to make her appear as a leader, thus emphasizing Art as Persuasion.
