DREAM: The cool pair of sunglasses that everybody was waiting for.

Who? Atena (in English known as Athena, in ancient Greek is Ἀθῆναι) is an ancient Greek goddess associated with wisdom, handicraft, and warfare.
Like you, Atena's most common Greek epithet is Glaukopis"bright-eyed".
Her father is Zeus himself: the King of all Gods. Legend has it that Zeus was experiencing an enormous headache and he ordered someone to cleave his head open with a double-headed axe. Atena leaped from Zeus's head, fully grown and armed.

One of Sigmund Freud's most treasured possessions was a small, bronze statue of Atena, which sat on his desk. Freud once described Athena as "a woman who is unapproachable and repels all sexual desires - since she displays the terrifying genitals of the Mother".

Feminist views on Atena are sharply divided; some feminists regard her as a symbol of female empowerment, while others regard her as "the ultimate patriarchal sell out... who uses her powers to promote and advance men rather than others of her sex".

Who is really Atena? Maybe yourself? Nobody knows - tutto è possibile.
