Sun in Aries

Blessings of the Sun in Aries!  Olivia Robertson wrote about this Foundation Center shrine:  "Above the Shrine of Aries, carved in bas-relief by David Durdin-Robertson, the Goddess Nepthys of Nature, blesses Africa."

Audio transcript:
"We are here assembled to celebrate the ancient Athenian Festival of the Panathenaea. The singer Orpheus instituted the Athenaea in honour of Pallas Athena, Goddess of Power, Wisdom and the Arts. At this time of the Vernal Equinox of equal days and nights, when the sun leaves the sign of the tied fishes for the ram, Athenians and foreign visitors formed a joyful procession. They climbed the hill of the Acropolis and brought to the Parthenon the Peplum of Athena."
