Winged Victory Of Samothrace Greek Handmade Statue Nike of Samothrace Goddess
The Winged Victory Of Samothrace Greek Handmade Statue Nike of Samothrace Goddess is a marble Hellenistic sculpture of Nike (the Greek goddess of victory), that was created about 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", and it is one of a small number of major Hellenistic statues surviving in the original, rather than Roman copies. The real statue is 244 centimeters (8.01 ft) high. 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.

All handmade products are unique, so there may be slight minor variations in size color and texture. If our products like you and you need more pieces please contact us. All of the copies of famous statues we produce made from a material in which natural crushed Greek Alabaster stone is mixed with a small quantity of resin that works as a glue. Alabaster was very widely used for small sculpture for indoor use in the ancient world The construction of the statue begins with the creation of the mold. The mold is made by hand-crafted artisans and is an exact copy of the ancient statue. The prepared mixture of alabaster powder and resin is poured into the mold. The very fine dust of the alabaster allows us to make a copy with great precision in detail. The copy is then hand-crafted and perfected by our experienced craftsmen. The painting is then polished with indelible colors in white, museum patina or colored. The quality of the construction is of a high standard so that we have a perfect result that remains unchanged over time.
Our statues are not carved. Statues of natural marble carved in the hand are very expensive constructions. Our effort is to give you a product at a very good price with perfect construction.
