Day 357 of 365

Nashville was known as the "Athens of the South" until it became more recently known 
as Music City 
An exact replica of the original Greek temple, the Parthenon, which no longer looks anything like this, having been badly damaged over the centuries.
The original Athena (the goddess of wisdom) statue no longer exists. This is over 40 feet tall and is gilded and painted with 8 pounds of 23.75 carat gold!
See you tomorrow,


  1. I have looked it up on Wikipedia and the lady is huge.

    Warm regards,

  2. You really are furthering your historial education!! Missing you but glad you are having a great time. Celebrated 50 in style over the weekend and now its back to the normal. Hugs xx

  3. I've been there! She is huge and the history of the structure is fascinating. I believe it was built for the World's Fair. I can't remember what year that was.

  4. Very interesting! I didn't know about it!

  5. Ahh Athena one of my favourite goddesses. Wonderful!


Thanks for stopping by to see what I've been up to today.
