Where and when did Nike
become
so important,
inspirational and influential?


How did her cult begin?

What did the
people who
first paid homage
to her
intend?

ATHENA NIKE TEMPLE
Proportionally, the little
building was
more heavily
adorned than any
Ionic
temple in the history

of Greek architecture.

Featuring never seen before 3D models. Reconstructed especially for our story of Nike in the classical period
when her temple was built as part of the Periclean building programme
on the Acropolis. We reveal Nike
as a modern day symbol that inhabits our world. In London Nike is displayed
on civic architecture and Royal
monuments. Sculptures featuring 'winged victory' are to
be found the length and breadth of the UK.
Nike appears throughout Europe, Canada
USA - indeed worldwide!

About the Pilot

Nike is now - the pilot 'trailer' is the joint production of archaeologist Peter Schultz and project leader
John Goodinson. John is also responsible for all the 3D reconstructions that appear in the trailer.

We have written our script with a broad audience in mind. Nike is shown in antiquity and today with
her relevance throughout European culture, also as 'the' commercial icon for sportswear.

Finally our pilot shows the temple of Athena Nike on the Akropolis with the architecture
of the Propylaea, Erechtheion and Parthenon seen in relative perspective. Nike's temple
may have been small in comparison - but was a masterpiece in sculpture and refinement.
