Custom natural marble statue | Life-size stone sculpture
Sometimes, a work of art may be as famous for the work time did on it as the work of the artist themselves. The famous Winged Victory of Samothrace, a striking winged interpretation of the Greek goddess Nike, the embodiment of victory, bent forward as if to charge ahead, is notoriously missing its head and arms… and this has seeped into the fabric of the work’s effect on viewers.
Here are two statues, similar in a set but definitely unique upon closer inspection: one seems to be a complete version of the other, but their effects are both whole and certain, as both are complete works of art. The Victory was built for placement in a great temple in ancient times, and the people who discovered her certainly couldn’t believe that the great marble statue is now for sale for everyone!
