Nike (Winged Victory)
Nike (Winged Victory) is a sculpture by Cordray Parker located on the southern end of the Hill Garden, below the stairs from the belvedere, at the Birmingham Botanical Gardens. The artist chose the subject, a Classical winged figure, which he rendered in his own deconstructed style. The "pieces" of the figure are supported on thin stainless steel rods, evoking the manner by which museums often display fragments of ancient artwork.
