32 Statue of Winged Pheme Riding Chariot in Antwerp, Belgium

This winged deity riding in a horse-drawn chariot is named Pheme in Greek mythology and Fama in Roman. She symbolizes fame and also spread rumors and gossiped about other gods. So I am not sure why this statue by Thomas Vincotte was selected to sit on top of the Royal Museum of Fine Arts in 1894. But I love seeing mythological figures riding in a biga (two horses) or quadriga (four horses) chariot, so I thought it was worth a close up.
