Reflections on Minerva

About this artwork

The original source for this Reflections print was the November-December 1948 edition of the comic book ‘Wonder Woman’, illustrated by Harry G. Peter. The eponymous super-heroine is shown with a speech bubble exclaiming her catchphrase, ‘Merciful Minerva!’. Wonder Woman regularly invoked the Roman goddess Minerva who was traditionally known as the goddess of wisdom but also encompassed the arts, trade, poetry, and later, war.
