Description

The cast reproduces a standing winged female figure, identified with the Nike, while it is in the act of taking flight. The figure is leaning forward, with the torso slightly rotated to the right with respect to the central axis, with the drapery that adheres tightly to the body and creates a chiaroscuro game of folds, with the right leg forward, on which the whole body rests. , while the left leg is brought back. The sculpture is headless, devoid of arms, hands and feet. The original, from which the cast derives, is in the Louvre Museum, in Parian marble and dated to 190 BC; the sculpture was found in 1863 in Samothrace.
