Our Nike Life-size Statue (Large) - Winged Victory of Samothrace is a reproduction masterpiece of the original statue that is attributed to Pythokritos of Rhodes around 190 B.C. The original sculpture, in marble of Paros, now belongs to the Louvre Museum (Paris). It was discovered in 1863 in the island of Samothrace by the French consul Charles Champoiseau, amateur archaeologist.
INDOOR & OUTDOOR INSTALLATION
Our life-size statues are balanced on the base in order to stand alone safely outdoors & indoors. If extra safety is required, the base can be fixed with a variety of methods resin glue, cementitious glue, or mechanical means such as iron bars or hooks. For indoor, we recommend pure white color as it is the most bright. For outdoor we recommend aging patina only if the architecture of the building matches with beige tones. Pure white color is fitting in the majority of the cases.
In order to keep an outdoor statue with the best look possible, wax or polyurethane spray can be applied once a year. During cold winters, the accumulation of ice in the crevices needs to be avoided. Crevises should be salted to deter the ice from expanding or simply be covered.
ABOUT THE MATERIAL
Our large size sculptures are produced by a unique and proprietary dry casting process. Over 90% of the finished sculpture is natural marble which gives it a look and feel of natural marble. The sculpture is not completely solid in order to reduce cost and weight, with a strong solid thickness suitable for indoor and outdoor. They are finished and patinated by hand.
