The image shows a beautifully carved sculpture of Nike, the goddess of victory in Greek mythology, in Ephesus, an ancient Greek city but currently part of Turkey.
As you can see, she has wings and appears to be flying. She is wearing a multi-folded flowing dress with a “swoosh.” The inspiration for the logo of Nike, the sportswear company, may have come from the folds of her dress.
