About Victory of Samothrace Statue Red – 18 cm – Réunion des Musées Nationaux-Grand Palais

This resin reproduction of The victory of Samothrace Statue Red 18 cm is produced by Réunion des Musées Nationaux-Grand Palais. There have been many debates on the date of this colossal sculpture found on the island of Samothrace. It was erected near the sanctuary of the Cabeiri, the protectors of sailors, to commemorate a victory of the fleet of Rhodes; mounted on the prow of a galley, her right-hand open, as the goddess announced this victory. The power of this work comes from the extraordinary virtuosity of the drapery. The transparent garment of the goddess clings to her chest, emphasizing the magnificently arched body. The pleats undulate and quiver down her left side, disappear to give shape to her thigh, which accentuates the momentum of the body, and then spread into a wide train trailing behind her. Located at the Louvre Museum, This victory, with its majestic and widespread wings, is more than a mere symbol of military success. This magnificent female body , stretching forwards and whipped by the wind as if she were a figurehead, looms up like an epic creation.
