Nike, a well-known word and brand in modern society, has an ancient meaning. Originally, Nike was a Greek goddess, and in this Nike Raising Torch Statue, she is depicted in all her glory, with her wings spread and her regalia held in hand. Nike was the personification of victory, as well as a goddess of strength and speed. She is also a winged goddess. She was supposedly brought to Zeus and the other Olympians before the Titanomachy, where Nike took up the role of Charioteer. She is commonly thought to have flown around battlefields, rewarding victors with glory and fame. In this statue, she is a youthful and beautiful young goddess, dressed in a breastplate and a flowing skirt. In one hand, she holds a crown of laurels, while the other holds aloft a burning torch. Extending from her back is a pair of wings, held out securely as if to hold her aloft. The statue stands atop a rounded base. This mythic statue is crafted entirely in cold cast bronze, which is a variant of cold cast resin that is mixed with powdered bronze to give the statue a metallic, bronze finish. It is also hand painted, to better enhance the statues luster and detail. It stands approximately 14.25 inches tall. If you are looking to offer some praise to the lady of Victory, or if perhaps you have an interest in Greek mythology, then you can rest assured that this Nike Raising Torch Statue is a great statue to have or a great gift for like-minded individuals.
