We offer one-of-a-kind, above ground, indoor and outdoor Columbariums with decadent statuary thoughout the Shrine of Remembrance. Our exclusive Columbariums will be perpetually maintained and cared for on our meticulously landscaped grounds.

One fantastic example of our Columbariums is the Liberty Columbarium at our Veterans Honor Court, which showcases numerous war theatre and peacetime memorials. This Columbarium is made of beautiful imported Bahama Blue granite and weights over 12 tons. It is crowned with an imperishable bronze sculpture from Italy depicting our nation’s symbol, the bald eagle. This bald eagle towers more than 14 feet high making for a majestic monument.

Nike ( Victory )

This first of its kind magnificent solid granite sculpture, weighing over 9 tons with its Bahama blue granite columbarium, is a breathtaking life-sized replica of “The Winged Victory of Samothrace” in the Louvre Museum, depicting Nike, the Greek goddess of victory, which is thought to have been sculpted around 200–190 BC. Over 10 million people visit the Louvre in Paris, France each year and see the Nike statue in the most prestigious site, the grand staircase.
Please read below to learn its legendary story.

History

The Nike of Samothrace has been described as “the greatest masterpiece of Hellenistic sculpture,” by H.W. Janson, (Renaissance sculpture specialist, chairman and professsor of the department of art, New York university, 1949-1979)
According to the Louvre website, this exceptional monument was discovered by Charles Champoiseau, French Vice Consul to Adrianople (Turkey) in 1863 on the small island of Samothrace in the northwest Aegean. It was sculpted using Parian marble and the base depicts the prow of a battleship, which is carved of gray Rhodian marble. 

Mythology

Nike was the goddess of victory in Greek mythology, depicted as having wings, hence her alternative name “Winged Goddess” She was the daughter of the Titan Pallas and the goddess Styx, sister of Kratos (power), Bia (force), and Zelus (zeal). The four siblings were companions of Zeus, and Nike had the role of the divine charioteer, flying above battlefields and giving glory to the victors
Nike is also called Victoria.
The original sculpture was created to not only honor the goddess, Nike, but to honor a sea battle. Nike fought with the Olympian gods against the Titans, and therefore is considered a representation of the victory of the Olympians.

A Parent's Love
We didn't have to look into your eyes
To fall in love with you.
We didn't need to hear your cry
To know you loved us too
We didn't need to hold your hand
To cherish you for always
We shared our hearts
You touched our souls,
You sweetened our spirits
You gave us memories, we will always hold dear
Yes, our hearts ache since you departed too soon
But, a parent's love does not end with death
For you are our child,
Forever our love is yours
- Kathy L. Schmucker
