The Magic of Samothraki

Here is the other half of Samothraki, the not submerged one:) I really hope a managed to capture at least a bit of the island's... aura. If you visit it someday maybe you'll let me know. Till then, Enjoy!

One of the things that is usually left out about Samothraki is that here they've found the statue of Nike. No, no, not the American sportswear company statue, the original Nike, the goddess of Victory.

The original is now a center piece at the Louvre Museum in Paris while in Samothraki you can only see a replica and the chamber in which the statue was found.
