In the foreground of the image you see the Pergamon frieze with intertwined bodies in high relief showing the battle between the Giants and the Olympian gods for supremacy of the cosmos. (The gods won.)
In the back you see a statue of the goddess Athena, Godess of wisdom, courage, inspiration, civilization, law and justice, strategic warfare, mathematics, strength and strategy. She played an important role in the victory of the gods. These amazing sculptures were made by artists in the 2nd century BC for the acropolis of the ancient Greek city of Pergamon in Asia Minor, todays Turkey. You can still see them today in Berlin in the great Pergamon Museum.
