Winged Victory of Samothrace

We just learned about the statue of Peplos Kore.

Another famous sculpture is the Winged Victory of Samothrace.

This is a statue of the mythical goddess Nike, that was created to honor a sea battle.
The way the statue is standing, it was meant to look strong and graceful.

It is a Hellenistic sculpture which means it was made when the Greek empire was ruling.
