  • The Winged Victory Of Samothrace, Also Called The Nike Of Samothrace, Is A Second Century B.C. Marble Sculpture Of The Greek Goddess Nike (Victory). Since 1884, It Has Been Prominently Displayed At The Louvre And Is One Of The Most Celebrated Sculptures In The World. Nike Of Samothrace Was Discovered In 1863, But Was Estimated To Have Been Created Around 190 Bc. It Was Created To Not Only Honor The Goddess, Nike, But To Honor A Sea Battle. It Conveys A Sense Of Action And Triumph As Well As Portraying Artful Flowing Drapery Through Its Features Which The Greeks Considered Ideal Beauty. The Figure Nike Originally Formed Part Of The Samothrace Temple Complex Dedicated To The Great Gods, Megalon Theon. It Stood On A Rostral Pedestal Of Gray Marble From Lartos Representing The Prow Of A Ship (Most Likely A Trihemiolia), And Represents The Goddess As She Descends From The Skies To The Triumphant Fleet. Before She Lost Her Arms, Which Have Never Been Recovered, Nike'S Right Arm Was Raised, Cupped Round Her Mouth To Deliver The Shout Of Victory. The Work Is Notable For Its Convincing Rendering Of A Pose Where Violent Motion And Sudden Stillness Meet, For Its Graceful Balance And For The Rendering Of The Figure'S Draped Garments, Depicted As If Rippling In A Strong Sea Breeze, Which Is Considered Especially Compelling. This Bronze Reproduction Was Cast Using The “Lost Wax Method” And Has A Brown Patina. It Is Signed By The Unknown Artist Rafael. (Wikipedia)
