The Winged Victory of Samothrace

The Winged Victory of Samothrace

When is an old marble statue not just another old marble statue? When it’s one of the oldest and most influential statues in the world.

What you probably don’t know is that the vast majority of those statues are copies made by Romans of Greek originals.

Not only are these original greek statues much older than their Roman copies – often by hundreds of years – they are also much, much rarer.

Not bad for a lady who is 2,200 years old and counting.
