Sacred Source -Nike

Home Order

Nike Goddess of victory and daughter of Styx. This fierce river goddess became associated with Pallas Athena by Hellenic times, although she appeared on vases and urns of much more antique origin. This image depicts Nike as "Winged Victory" and dates from c. 500 BCE. The original, headless and armless, was found at Samothrace, and is today housed in the Louvre. We have added a head of Athena from the same period, plus arms and laurel wreath to bring life and triumph back to Athena Nike.
