Revel in a winning puzzle experience with "Nike: Goddess of Victory"!
Race to a rewarding puzzle finish! Nike is the Greek goddess of victory, speed and strength, worshipped for her winning ways. Appointed Zeus’ chief charioteer at the start of the Titan War, Nike and her siblings Zelos (Rivalry), Kratos (Strength) and Bia (Force) became sentinels of Zeus' throne. The talented street-artist duo PichiAvo overlays the rawness of explosively colorful graffiti with the sheer image of sleek, classic sculpture, allowing the grittiness of life to penetrate the ideal.
Reference: The actual sculpture pictured in the image is not of Nike, but of Boadicea, who was a queen of the Iceni tribe around 61 CE, and a British folk hero. The statue is located near Westminster in London. The artists chose to use her inspiring image to portray the Greek Goddess Nike. Both Nike and Boadicea mean "Victory".
