Winged Victory, Nike of Samothrace, 190 BC.

A highly detailed exact miniature of the large marble statue from antiquity, which is housed in the Musee du Louvre, Paris.

The marble statue represents the goddess as she descends from the skies to the triumphant Armies.

Sculptured arts have been commissioned to re-create this beautiful marble Nike, exact to the full sized original.
Every mark, and every chip from centuries of wear and war, has been duplicated throughout, including the restoration done over the years, including the frame on the statue’s outstretched right wing, which is a symmetric plaster version of the original left one, as it was missing along with the head and arms when unearthed in 1863.
Before she lost her arms, which have never been recovered, Nike's right arm is believed to have been raised, her hand cupped round her mouth to deliver the shout of Victory.
Despite its significant damage and incompleteness, the marble Victory statue is held to be one of the great surviving masterpieces of sculpture from the Hellenistic Period, and from the entire Greco-Roman era.
The statue shows a mastery of form and movement which has impressed critics and artists since its discovery.
It is considered one of the Louvre's greatest treasures, and since the late 19th century it has been displayed in the most dramatic fashion, at the head of the sweeping Daru staircase, within the museum.
The work is notable for its convincing rendering of a pose where violent motion and sudden stillness meet, for its graceful balance and for the rendering of the figure's draped garments, compellingly depicted as if rippling in a strong sea breeze.

Bad experience delay and lack of comunication trhough email

Put my order on August 8th for article in stock and didn´t receive any update in two weeks. No reply to emails, only can contact with them by Etsy. No explanation about delays on the shipment.. wrong first shipment after about 3 weeks to put my order that never arrived, come back to them. After that, another weeks waiting for a solution. I send them email to comunicate my desire to cancel the order if not it is shipped before a date.. I finally claim them by paypal and instead refund, they send the item despite my wish that I no longer wanted it and required a full refund. It was for a gift and it wouldn't arrive on time and I had to buy a similar one somewhere else. He has made me waste my time and my money for 2 months without explanation or justification. Never more

Dear Sir, we answered all your communications, you left it with customs for to long, you could have returned the item for a refund, delays with carriers and parcels not collected from customs is out of our control, but please do tell the truth when leaving feedback.
