Inspiration!


Hello everyone! I don't know who's doing well/ being productive, but I'm certainly not. Damn you, artists block. So, in the name of productivity (ironically, posted out of procrastination) I give you Nike of Samothrace, which in my opinion is the most beautiful piece of artwork ever created, and forever my favorite above all else. I know we have a copy in the Sculpture court, but as she is shoved haphazardly under an arch in the corner I don't think people really appreciate how spectacular she really is.
