Mod The Sims – Objects, Decor: Winged Victory of Samothrace by TheJim07.

The winged goddess of Victory standing on the prow of a ship overlooked the Sanctuary of the Great Gods on the island of Samothrace. This monument was probably an ex-voto offered by the people of Rhodes in commemoration of a naval victory in the early second century BC. The theatrical stance, vigorous movement, and billowing drapery of this Hellenistic sculpture are combined with references to the Classical period-prefiguring the baroque aestheticism of the Pergamene sculptors.
Discovered in 1863 by Charles Champoiseau on the island of Samothrace, the Victory has been exhibited since 1866 at the Louvre museum in Paris.
