Photographer's Note

The Winged Victory of Samothrace, also called the Nike of Samothrace, [1] is a 2nd century BC marble sculpture of the Greek goddess Nike (Victory). Since 1884, it has been prominently displayed at the Louvre and is one of the most celebrated sculptures in the world.
The Nike of Samothrace, discovered in 1863, is estimated to have been created around 190 BC.[2] It was created to not only honor the goddess, Nike, but to honor a sea battle. It conveys a sense of action and triumph as well as portraying artful flowing drapery through its features which the Greeks considered ideal beauty.
