Nike is known as the goddess of victory in Greek Mythology. In the Titan War between the gods she was the divine charioteer. This little sketch here I did is after the statue Winged Nike of Samothrace. Originally, the statue represented the prow of a ship descending from the skies as part of the Magalon Theon, a Samothrace temple dedicated to the Gods. It now resides in the Louvre. Nike personifies strength, speed, and triumph. Those are some good things to have..
