This gorgeous statue, also called the Nike of Samothrace, is currently located in the Louvre in Paris. It is one of the iconic artworks of that museum, standing at the top of one of the main staircases.
Sculpted out of white marble, this statue demonstrates the high standards of Greek art at the end of that nation’s dominance of aesthetics. Rome was already overtaking Greece as the major military and political power in the European, North African, and Middle Eastern worlds at the time.
This statue apparently stood on the island of Samothrace, marking a victory of the Greek fleets against the Egyptians, until in 1863 a French amateur archeologist. brought it to Paris. It has stood in the Louvre in the same spot since 1884.
Except during World War II when it was removed from Paris and hidden in 1939.
