Winged Victory of Samothrace

Winged Victory of Samothrace, also called Nike of Samorthrace

Year: c. 220-190 BC
Type: Parian marble
Height: 328 cm
Displayed: Louvre,Paris

This is one of my favorite statues. The statue originally had arms and a head, but I prefer it without. I always get a sense of hope and beauty and Victory looking at it. It is what a woman’s soul should look it. Ready to defend, fight, and overcome all obstacles.

I saw a miniature of this sculpture in a gift shop once, I should have bought it.

Such beauty. Such power. Such grace. If only my soul looked like that.

What would you choose to have represent your soul?
