Nike of Samothrace Statue
It brings Louvre to my home.
I am very satisfied with this purchase. I placed it at the top of my stairway so that one sees it going up the stairs just like what one experiences with the real statue at Louvre! I just have two comments about appearance: i) the sculptor did not go into the details of showing the feet - not a major issue because one might think that the feet are covered by the clothing. ii) I thought that the method of shipping this very odd-shaped statue in two pieces was very novel. However, when I put the two pieces together there was a very small but visible and annoying gap between the upper and lower torso. In other words, the two halves of the statue did not quite perfectly butt against each other. I was able to patch it though with a touch of "bondo" and now it looks perfect!

This is an amazing statue. Anyone who has taken an art history class should be familiar with this statue. The delivered product contains amazing details and commands attention. I recommend any buyer place a single light source on the Nike, since the details truly POP with one light shining on it at night.
My only complaint (and it isn't an actual compliant) is that I was looking for a life size version of the Nike. This one is a reasonable size... but imagine having a 5 - 6 foot tall Nike of Samothrace in your garden!

A beautiful piece of art!!! Resin casting is perfectly weighted. Should last my lifetime and more.

This is statue is current at a great price. I bought two a couple of years ago at a higher price which was the reason why it took me a long time to make my decision. I am glad that Design Toscano was able to make it available at a much reasonable price. The statue is made out of great quality materials. It will be the focal point in your garden without a doubt.

It's awesome, but the head was missing.
Love it, looks great! But the next version needs head.

Stunning. Well crafted, she mirrors the one in The Louve very well. Easy to assemble, greatly packaged. I'm extremely pleased with the purchase and will purchase from Design Toscano again.

It doesn't have all the detail of the original or the exact shape, but you can't go wrong at this price point. No one notices that it's 2 pieces unless I tell them. The 2 pieces join at a location that makes it look like part of the design.

Lovely focal point of garden....
People walking past the house always say they really like it. Is in the center of a flower bed and looks like the real thing. Comes in 2 pieces , easy to move , but sometimes seam shows just slightly . Finish has held up but I put it away for winter.
