Circa 190 BC - the subject of many an ode, the definition of unmatched freedom - this is the spirit of the Winged Victory. Also known as Nike of Samothrace, the image is so striking.
As alluring as the original in the Louvre, this Polaroid transfer on grey textured card stock reverses to French postcard style (carte postale) on the back.
On the front, a French verse from Khalil Gibran's Le Prophete:
Vous avez si souvent vogué sure mes rêves! Et main-
tenant vous survenez à mon reveil. qui est mon reve
The dividing line between your correspondence and the address on the back echos the the verse, but in English:
HOW OFTEN HAVE YOU SAILED IN MY DREAMS AND NOW YOU COME
IN MY AWAKENING WHICH IS MY DEEPER DREAM. ...GIBRAN
