WINGED VICTORY FIGURINE - WHITE - 10 INCH
A 20th-century replica of Winged Victory of Samothrace, found in the museum lobby of the American Revolution Museum at Yorktown, serves as a symbolic expression of the great military victory at Yorktown in 1781. The original statue depicting Nike, the Greek goddess of Victory, was carved in the third century B.C. This crushed stone resin figurine stands 10" tall. Museum Masterworks sculptures are hand-cast and hand-finished in crushed stone resin. Centuries-old casting techniques still apply. Artisans apply the patina in a labor-intensive process that requires several layers and specialized shading.
