This is a great sculpture featuring one of the more warlike Winged Victories you will see - wild-eyed and wearing a helmet crowned with furies.

(Note: Don't click on the image unless you want to see a naked guy marching off to war. There's nothing prurient about it, but it's not the sort of image most countries would have on their national monument.)
