Last night I was having dinner with my little witch, and planning which deity I'd post about today. When I asked him which one he would suggest, he said without hesitation, "Nike!". ;)
So Nike is here today. The Greek Goddess of Victory and strenght, with her wings to fly over battlefields indicating the victorious armies (I wouldn't be surprised if the warriors spent more time looking up to the skies looking for Her than fighting, lol). Daughter of the Titan Pallas and the Goddes Styx, she was taken by her mother, with her siblings, to help Zeus and the Olympians in His war against the Titans. She was chosen to be the Gods' charioteer then.
The shoes company Nike is named after this Goddess (now you know why its symbol is that stylized wing!).
Oh And the Jules Rimet Trophy had Her figure as well. The Brazilian soccer Team won this beautiful trophy in the World Cup of 1970. Years later, stupid thieves robbed and melted it.
