Victoire de Samothrace

The Winged Victory of Samothrace, also called the Nike of Samothrace, is a 2nd-century BC marble sculpture of the Greek Goddess Nike (Victory). Since 1884, it has been prominently displayed at the Louvre and is one of the most celebrated sculptures in the world.
 Our bronze edition was sold at the Louvre in the 19th century and is 17 inches tall.
One of the most iconic movie moments of the 20th Century is when Audrey Hepburn poses in front of the statue in the 1957 movie Funny Face.
