Minerva Gallery


Our gallery was named Minerva because:

“Minerva was the Roman virgin goddess of handicrafts, learning and the arts, encompassing poetry, medicine, wisdom, commerce, weaving, dyeing, crafts, magic, trade and war. She was said to be the inventor of numbers and musical instruments.”

Minerva is often depicted with her sacred creature: an owl – the ‘owl of Minerva’ – that symbolizes her ties to wisdom”.
