The Parthenon is a temple built for the Greek goddess Athena in the 5th century BC on the Acropolis of Athens. The Parthenon is an enduring symbol of Classical Greece, generally considered to be the culmination of the development of the Doric order. It is also a symbol of Athenian democracy, and is one of the world's greatest cultural monuments.
This incredibly detailed bead was designed by San Francisco Bay Area artist Shani Yokoyama, hand-carved by a master bead wax carver, and then cast in high quality sterling silver with oxidized accents.
