Victory of Samothrace - 18 to 50 cm
Reproduction patinated by hand. Mold made from an imprint of the original work exhibited at 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 the movement that animates it; the Victory seems to land on the bow.
3D technology was used to faithfully reproduce this reduction and allowed to integrate the last restorations made on the original.
