Escribir es como hacer el amor. No te preocupes por el orgasmo, preocúpate del proceso.

Winged Victory of Samothrace-Νίκη τῆς Σαμοθράκης

Victory of Samothrace is a Greek sculpture of the Hellenistic period (second century BC) depicting the goddess Nike, the personification of victory, placed on the front of a ship. She is currently in the Musée du Louvre. The total height of the monument is 5.57 meters. The Centre for Research and Restoration of the Museums of France (C2RMF), which had tested the statue was able to identify minute traces of blue, invisible to the naked eye. “These traces can be concluded that the polychrome statue was, at least in part,” the museum. The coat of the statue was to be decorated with a colored stripe. Another surprise: a lock escaping the bun Victory appeared on the back of the neck, hidden under a capping modern plaster dating from the twentieth century. Discovered in 1863 off the Greek island of Samothrace (northeast Aegean), reconstructed in the Louvre between 1880 and 1884, she set foot on a base shaped prow placed on a pedestal. It has been completely restored and reinstalled on its base.

On the day of Hitler’s suicide, a squad of American soldiers found themselves face to face with the eighty-year-old composer and conductor Richard Strauss. Alex Ross reflects on the story of the encounter: http://nyr.kr/UqKUES

“Why do I find these tales mesmerizing? Perhaps it has to do with the awkward relationship that any child of the postwar American empire has with the old European colossus of classical music. No matter how deeply we bow before it, we feel like intruders, pulling into the driveways of the great composers and threatening them with eviction.”
