Join artist Kaitlin Ferguson in a series of creative activities based on the statue of Nike, goddess of victory. See if you can spot the pieces that are missing from the statue and have a go at making your own set of wings.

Maybe you have heard of Emperor Hadrian - who built Hadrian's wall near the Scottish/English border. But have you heard of the man he loved, Antinous? Listen to this story about how much Hadrian cared for Antinous.
In this activity you will learn about mythical heroes and gods, and see their representations in our museum. You will then be invited to create your own hero or heroine! You can also see an example of a hero created by our education team.
You will need:
- paper, pencils, colouring pencils or pens
- the instructions!
You can find the instructions for this (and other activities) here:
