The Nike of Samothrace? But who is this goddess actually?

The winged goddess Nike (Greek word for victory) was the daughter of the Titans Pallas and Styx.

After helping Zeus banish the Titans from Mount Olympus, Nike was honored and given the title of goddess of victory.

Since then, his image became predominant in Greek art, and his presence was associated with physical and moral excellence. War, sport and even poetry, all pretexts were good to cover it with glory.

This statuette of the Nike of Samothrace is a perfect example.

As its name suggests, the original was found on the Greek island of Samothrace during the 19th century. The sculpture probably commemorated a naval victory which allowed the inhabitants to preserve their freedom.

Either way, this statuette of the Nike of Samothrace appears to land into a fierce headwind, its magnificent wings outstretched.

The body twists slightly as if to maintain its balance, while the transparent chiton, heavy with spray, clings and swells spectacularly.

Considered one of the most incredible masterpieces of Hellenic art, the Nike of Samothrace is today kept at the Louvre Museum.

However, this Greek lucky charm is still full of secrets and mysteries...

No one knows when or why the Nike of Samothrace was erected.

Additionally, he is missing his head and both arms.

This statuette of the Nike of Samothrace therefore leaves room for all the most personal assumptions and interpretations.
