The Palladium is actually supposed to be a wooden statue of Athena, but I couldn't figure out a good way to accurately represent that using Lego pieces. So I settled for this gold covered female idol of vaguely South American design. One may presume that somewhere along its history, someone decided the Palladium was valuable enough to plate in gold, thus disguising its true nature from those who did not know its secret.

2018-12-01 Rerun commentary: I think if I were writing this comic now, I'd make Haken's final word "dummkopfs" instead of "stupid".

I like the archwork on the background wall. I thought the Louvre should have something a bit fancier than a blank flat wall. The curved shadows add quite a bit of visual interest.
