Nike assumed the role of the divine charioteer, a role in which she often is portrayed in Classical Greek art. Nike flew around battlefields rewarding the victors with glory and fame, symbolized by a wreath of Laurel leaves.
Nike is seen with wings in most statues and paintings, one of the most famous being the Winged Victory of Samothrace. Nike is the goddess of strength, speed, and victory.
Nike was a very close acquaintance of Athena, and is thought to have stood in Athena's outstretched hand in the statue of Athena located in the Parthenon. Nike is one of the most commonly portrayed figures on Greek coins.
Solid yellow bronze reproduction of a Greek coin from 452 BC.
The coin is about 16mm.
I make my own molds and do not do casting so each piece is individually made and signed in the back.
The ring is handmade the old fashion way.
It is wire wrapped as it was in the antiquity with bronze wire coated and a thin anti-tarnish layer.
Rings size up to 7 use a thin wire.
Rings size 8 and above use a thicker wire.
