Athena's helmet

Often, when we have some symbol in mind, we seem to find it again in unexpected places. I like to check out the online fashion pages in the belief that what designers create for women to wear reflects how their customers are wishing to express themselves. Today there were photos of creations by Michelle Jank for Australian Fashion Week. One hair arrangement or headdress struck me as having a very similar look to the plumed Attic helmet that Athena is usually shown wearing. Below is a comparison of Athena (in a clipart form) and the fashion model.

Rambling, wand'ring, here and then there
Sometimes swooping high in the air
Diving into the deep dark sea
Ever, ever, discovering me.
