This elegant, stylised figurine represents the winged goddess Nike. She was closely associated with the goddess Athena, hence her holding here an owl (in her left hand). In her other hand she holds a wreath, which she is about to confer on a victorious athlete or poet.
Her headress, hair and facial expression are in the archaic style of the 7th century BC, similar to the archaic korai of this period.
She has been cast for us, in Greece, using the traditional 'lost wax' method.
Shown here with medium and mini Nike figurines!
