In ancient Greece, Nike was the Goddess of Victory, Speed and Strength. A winged Goddess, these attributes allowed her to mediate and deliver messages between the Gods and Humankind. She appears here carrying a palm branch and a wreath as signs of Victory and Peace. A symbol of success and determination, her prescence refers to success in all undertakings.
In Rome, where Nike was called Victoria, she came to be regarded as the protecting goddess of the Senate and her statue in the Curia Julia was the cause of the final combat between Christianity and Paganism toward the end of the 4th century. Her winged image was adapted into art throughout the ages and can be be recognized as the angels we know today.
