Virgin Mary with Angel plaque
In Greek mythology, Nike (meaning "Victory") (Roman equivalent: Victoria), was a goddess who personified triumph and victory. She was capable of running and flying at great speeds. She was effectively treated as a bringer of good luck and was often depicted as a winged figure perching on another god's arm, peeping out from a fellow god's clothes or flying above like a winged fairy. In this plaque is flying together with a winged Eros.
