HOUSE Manifesto No. 0342 – The Winged Victory of Samothrace, one of the most celebrated masterpiece sculptures in the world & a signature art piece from the Hellenistic period. It was created not only to honour the goddess Nike, but also to recognize a sea battle. It evokes a sense of action & triumph as well as portraying artful flowing drapery, as though the goddess were descending upon the prow of a ship. For more of a personal connection to the sculpture, I couldn’t help but thread the symbolism to Winston Churchill’s quote that reads: “success is not final, failure is not fatal. It is the courage to continue that counts”.
