An Interesting Statue

I live in the land of mouse ears and space shuttles, so my choice of statuary is a little limited.... For this week's Blogstalker assignment I chose my favorite little knick knack paddy wack.

Do I disturb you?

I found this Nike of Samothrace at one of those discount retail stores. I said, "Huh, isn't that neat," and walked away. But, like some Giger-esque bad dream, she called me back and I bought her the next day. She lost one wing in a terrible marauding kitty accident, and has scared the crap out of the Hairy One ever since.

She is rather disturbing. She appeals to that leather and lace, liquid latex part of me that the monsters have (mostly) suppressed.
