Patina Options

Each piece is custom finished. Depending on a sculpture’s texture and level of detail, the look of a patina can vary. A slight variation in color from order to order is to be expected.

Unless otherwise noted, our reproductions are hand cast in plaster and reinforced with burlap, fiber strands, and/or metal rods for extra strength.

 

FLAT WHITE: A unified, matte white finish. This is the optimum patina for cast drawing as it allows focus on form.

WHITE PATINA: A white finish with a light ivory tone added to the top surfaces.

A reduction of the famous sculpture. Found on the island of Samothrace in 1863, this statue is a personification of Victory, or Nike in Greek. It is believed the statue was meant to commemorate a Rhodian naval victory, such as that of Myonnisos or the one over Antiochus III of Syria early in the second century B.C.E. The sculpture was located at the Sanctuary of the Great Gods - a fitting place to honor them for their aid and protection. The monument was located in a small building in a niche that was dug into the side of the hill there. The prow of a ship, made of marble blocks, still acts as the base for the sculpture of the winged goddess. The prow may have stood in a reflecting pool to give the appearance it was floating. The statue was likely meant to be viewed from the front left-hand side given its placement in the building and the higher level of detail on the left side of the body. Victory's stance and the articulation of her drapery, which billows in places and pushes tightly against her in others, solidifies the image of the wind blowing while the ship surges forward.
