    Athena, Goddess of beauty and wisdom, is Bronzino's Lucrezia Panciaticchi, exhibited at the Uffizi. With her perfect traits, she stands for the dashing kind of pure beauty, whilst the piercing intelligence in her eyes demonstrate a second kind of beauty known to women such as Cleopatra, Madame de la Pompadour and Nûr Jahân.
