Winged Victory of Samothrace My friend Biju had this link in his IM away message today. It's a Wikipedia entry on a statue called the Winged Victory of Samothrace, which he was fortunate to view last week in the Louvre. Here is what he had to say about it: I was slightly mesmerized after seeing it. For a number of reasons I guess: it predates Christ and it has realistic details-the statue appears as if sea-like winds are actually whipping against it. And yet there it stands; upright, staunchly opposing the wind and what may come from the sea. As if saying that it will stand up against the world, and will rise to the coming ships … fear for this statue is not an option. Oh to have such faith!
