Description
This genuine antique Classical Revival carnelian intaglio has been mounted in a modern 18 karat gold ring.

Of the many Greek personifications Nike is one deity who wears wings, often holds a palm branch and carries a shield. The sensuous young woman on this intaglio appears to have wings, she is bare-breasted and holds a large branch in her right band. A shield floats in mid-air at upper right with the legend VIC PAR shown in reverse. Though the woman’s body faces frontally, her head is turned to the right, and her left foot 1s lifted as if she is walking. A small palm tree is at the lower right with a thick serpentine trunk somewhat resembling a caduceus, also a symbol of Nike. The engraver of this lovely intaglio may have been inspired by ancient Roman coins, where Nike is often used as a symbol of victory.
