Reproduction of the Parthenon East Pediment (438 to 432 BCE). Athens. The original sculptures are exposed in the British Museum, London.

This piece is a relief recreation of the sculptural ensemble of the pediment that was located above the main entrance of the Parthenon, oriented to the East, composed of sculptures of the Olympian gods by the Athenian sculptor Phidias. It represents the birth of Athena, who emerged from the head of Zeus, adult and armed. Several gods appear, including Zeus on the throne, in the center on the left, and on the right Athena, followed by Hephaestus with his axe. Between Athena and Zeus, the goddess Nike, Victory, is depicted flying, crowning Athena.

The sculptures of the Parthenon, the temple of Athena Parthenos on the Acropolis of Athens, were made by the school of Phidias in the 5th century BCE (447 BCE to 438 BCE) in Pentelic marble. The sculptural ensembles that were part of the temple were: the two East and West pediments, which showed the birth of Athena in the East pediment and the dispute with Poseidon in the western pediment; the metopes, located below the pediments, reliefs with scenes of struggle against the centaurs and the Amazons; and the friezes, low reliefs that surrounded the perimeter of the inner temple or cella of the Parthenon, in which the great procession of the Panathenaea was represented, a festival in honor of the patron goddess of the city of Athens, the goddess Athena.
