Nike of Samothrace Statue
190 BCE, Hellenistic period, Daru Staircase, Louvre, Paris
The showcase of the Louvre still thrills viewers today as Nike, Winged Victory, presides over its grand staircase. This 19th-century, scaled museum rendition of the goddess Nike with wings spread as she landed on the prow of a ship is thought to be announcing the Rhodian naval victory over Antiochos III. One of the world's most recognizable sculptural images, our estate-sized rendition is cast directly from a 19th-century original in art-grade resin.
25½"Wx20"Dx40½"H. 30 lbs.
Was: $349.00

Nike of Samothrace Statue is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 12.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beyond fabulous!! Soooooooooooo much better than the photos in the listing. This is truly a show stopper!!! The statue arrives boxed like it's the arc of the covenant. A shipping genius packed this statue. The statue does however arrive in 2 pieces which I wasn't expecting, I either missed that in the description or it wasn't mentioned. However, once you get beyond the 2 piece concept and pop it together (the pieces fit perfectly and seamlessly) the statue is a master piece. I've placed the statue as the focal point over looking my pool

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful 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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great piece 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It's awesome, but the head was missing. Love it, looks great! But the next version needs head.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from great value 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.
