Amazing what one can find inside an historical building when touring the location. One of the largest statues I have seen around, at nearly 40+ feet tall and totally housed inside another amazing structure.

It is taller than expected. Gold gilding is beautiful. Nice carving. Must see! The building that houses Athena is also impressive.
