Art History Meme: 1/7 sculptures/other media

Winged Victory of Samothrace by an unknown Greek artist.
ca. 200 - 190 BCE.  Louvre, Paris.

"This is a Hellenistic sculpture with references to Classical features from the Peragemen sculptors. The spiralling effect is theatrical, offering emotion, using the oblique angles of the wings. This Ancient Greek sculpture carries a Rhodian influence that prefigures the Pergamene school."  [x]
