Nike (Winged Victory) of Samothrace, c. 190 B.C.E.

Nike (Winged Victory) of Samothrace, Lartos marble (ship) and Parian marble (figure), c. 190 B.C.E. 3.28m high (Mus?e du Louvre, Paris). The sculpture was unearthed in 1863 after its discovery under the direction of Charles Champoiseau?, the French Vice-Consul to Turkey. Please note that the theoretical reconstruction of the Nike as a trumpeter mentioned in the video has been largely abandoned; the monument is now thought to have been part of a fountain possibly commemorating a naval victory.
