Winged Victory of Samothrace (Nike of Samothrace)

Funny story regarding this sculpture…. I have a miniature version that I have from a study abroad trip to Greece years back. It was on a bookshelf in my apartment that, when I moved a few months ago, the movers wrapped and packed for me. In the inventory, they have to indicate anything that was damaged prior to moving. He wrote that the “bookshelf angel was missing its head.” I had to think about it for a while because I don’t have any angel statues. When I finally realized he was talking about my Nike, I thought it was pretty funny. The joke was on him – she never had a head!
