Victory of Samothrace - 18 to 50 cm
Reproduction with hand patina. Mold made from an impression of the original work exhibited in the Louvre.
Discovered at the end of the 19th century on the island of Samothrace, this sculpture was made to commemorate a maritime victory. The extraordinary virtuosity of the drapery creates the power of the work and the illusion of movement that animates it; the Victory seems to land on the bow.
3D technology was used to faithfully reproduce this reduction and to integrate the latest restorations made on the original.
