The Winged Victory of Samothrace, also called the Nike of Samothrace, is a marble Hellenistic sculpture of Nike (the Greek goddess of victory), that was created in about the 2nd century BC.
Since 1884 the Samothrace sculpture has had home in the Louvre, Paris.
I wonder how many cultures this winged headless beauty may have ‘lived’ through?
