Welcome to our world of art.
My interpretation of what is said to be one of the most beautiful statues in the world. Now situated in the Luouve Museum in Paris.
The Winged Victory of Samothrace, discovered in 1863, is estimated to have been created around 200–190 BC. It is 8 feet (2.44 metres) high. It was created to not only honor the goddess, Nike, but to honor a sea battle. It conveys a sense of action and triumph as well as portraying artful flowing drapery, as though the goddess was descending to alight upon the prow of a ship. (wikipedia).
I have added a frame for reference only, the painting is without a frame so that you can frame it how you wish.
