Hey Minerva that’s some bust you’ve got. Well thank you !

I’ve seen this bust statue of Minerva  sitting around the garage for years, 

when I say for years I mean about 40.

It’s roughly 2 feet tall hollow and of some metal I’m guessing  aged copper or brass.

It’s always intrigued me and for some reason she has a parrot on her head.

The parrot looks like it may have been broken off at some point

probably some kid running around when he was told not to

but has been expertly repaired.

I always assumed it was a member of my family but then a google of the name

Minerva revealed she was the Daughter of Jupiter and a virgin goddess

so I guess that leaves my family out.
