This replica casted in bronze is of the the Winged Nike of Samothrace, one of the most important and beautiful surviving masterpieces of antiquity.The original marble statue of the Winged Nike of Samothrace (Nike of Samothrace) was uncovered on the island of Samothrace by French consul and amateur archaeologist Charles Champoiseau in 1863 .In Greek mythology, Nike, also known as the Winged Goddess of Victory, bestowed triumph, both in war and in contest. As a war goddess she was often represented standing along side Zeus, Athena and Ares. As goddess of contests, she typically is portrayed adorning the winner with a victor's wreath and/or sash.The statue of Nike is one of the greatest surviving sculpture masterpieces of the Hellenistic period, even though it is significantly damaged; most significantly missing its head and outstretched arms. Created by an unknown sculptor (Rhodian in origin), the piece is dated between period 220-190 BCE. This archaic duplicate can now be enjoyed on a daily basis for anyone enchanted by this celebrated mastery or with Greek mythology. The goddess was cast to the original likeness using the lost-wax method and stained with a brown patina finish. She eternally stands upon a black marble base.

Outstanding!

The Winged Victory of Samothrace is an elegant piece of work; detailed, true to the original sitting in the Louvre, Paris. It is substantial in both weight and size, and the quality of workmanship and finishing is stunning. I bought this work a a present for my beloved brother and his wife, who are celebrating their 40 wedding anniversary this coming May; after having seen this piece, I have no doubt whatever that they will be left speechless, and breathless. In fact, I like it so well that I think I shall buy another for myself; I just simply can't bring myself to ship it off! Thank you so much Bronzehaus, your efforts most certainly do justice to one of the most famous sculptures in existence in the world today.

With Very Best Regards!

FAQ's

What material are your sculptures made out of?

All of our sculptures are made from100% hot cast bronze, and handmade in the ancient lost wax casting method. We never sell cheap cold cast sculptures or resins!

What is the difference between hot cast and cold cast bronzes?

Hot cast bronze is created by pouring a molten metal mixture into a mold.  Before the metal can be poured, our artists must first create the mold on a medium such as clay, rubber, or wood.  Each mold allows for a limited number of pours, and therefore a limited amount of sculptures can be created in any given round of production before the mold is destroyed and the artist must create a new mold.

Cold cast is actually made from resins and plastics which are painted over. They are cheaper, lighter, and less durable.

Generally speaking, hot cast bronzes are very time consuming and limited in their production, whereas cold cast resins can be mass produced and are inexpensive to create.

Do you do custom work?

Custom work is available in some cases.  Please contact us with the details of the job.

Can I sell you one of my own pieces?

Unfortunately, we do not buy pieces from the public.  To ensure the highest quality, we only sell brand new pieces that we commission ourselves, or buy directly from artists and manufacturers we know and trust.
