Winged Victory Nike of Samothrace 8" Tall Decorative Resin Figurine In Off White Alabaster Finish

The Winged Victory of Samothrace, also called the Nike of Samothrace,[2] is a marble Hellenistic sculpture of the Greek goddess Nike (Victory), perhaps of the 2nd-century BC. Since 1884, it has been prominently displayed at the Louvre and is one of the most celebrated sculptures in the world. H.W. Janson described it as "the greatest masterpiece of Hellenistic sculpture,"[1] and it is one of a small number of major Hellenistic statues surviving in the original, rather than Roman copies. The Winged Victory of Samothrace, discovered in 1863, is conventionally thought to have been made to celebrate a naval victory in 190 BC. However, there are objections to this dating, and alternative victories ranging from the Battle of Salamis in 306 BC to the Battle of Actium in 31 BC have been proposed as the event being celebrated. Datings based on stylistic evaluation have been equally variable, ranging across the same three centuries, but perhaps tending to an earlier date.[3] It is 8 feet (2.44 metres) high.[4] It was created not only to honor the goddess, Nike, but also to honor a sea battle. It conveys a sense of action and triumph as well as portraying artful flowing drapery, as though the goddess were descending to alight upon the prow of a ship.

The Winged Victory of Samothrace - Louvre - Grey

This reproduction of the Victory of Samothrace from the exclusive Louvre Museum's collection was made from a 3D reduction. The sculpture was scanned shortly after its last restoration (2013-2014) so the cast would reflect each modification made by the team of archeologists: bits of plaster were removed, while pieces of marble stone found on the excavation site were carefully assembled to complete the puzzle with new pleats on the drapery and a long feather on the top of the left wing. The Reproduction is in resin with patina. There have been many debates on the date of this colossal statue found on the island of Samothrace. It was erected near the sanctuary of the Cabeiri, the protectors of sailors, to commemorate a victory of the fleet of Rhodes; mounted on the prow of a galley, her right hand open, the goddess announced this victory. The power of this work comes from the extraordinary virtuosity of the drapery. The transparent garment of the goddess clings to her chest, emphasizing the magnificently arched body. The pleats undulate and quiver down her left side, disappear to give shape to her thigh, which accentuates the momentum of the body, and then spread into a wide train trailing behind her.This victory, with its majestic and widespread wings, is more than a mere symbol of...
