The significance of the parthenon

The Parthenon is amazing. The Parthenon is made to honor the Greek god of wisdom and Athens patron Goddess Athena. The Greek Parthenon is significant because of its advance architecture. The Parthenon is significane.
They used some art to as a place to pray. I consider the Parthenon's statue of Athena art and people went to pray there. Some other people used the arts to entertain themselves. They would go to see dramas, a tragedy, or a comedy. Other Citizens used art as there job they would make it then sell it. That is how the ancient Greeks used art in there daily lives.
